The funeral for Surinder Singh, who was shot to death last week while walking with a friend in Elk Grove, has drawn several hundred mourners this morning to a Sacramento funeral home.

Relatives, friends and community officials from Elk Grove are at the North Sacramento Funeral Home on El Camino Way to pay their last respects to the 65-year-old who died on south Stockton Boulevard while walking with his friend Gurmej Atwal, 78.

Authorities are investigating the March 4 shooting, which left Atwal in critical condition, as a hate crime.

Today's ceremony for Singh is subdued compared to a Friday night candlelight vigil held at the site of the shooting, near Green Pointe Drive.

This shabad uses the word ਜੀਉ frequently, it is written as if Guru Ram Das is talking to a friend...
