FBI to Help Investigate Sikh’s Shooting
KENT (AP) — Authorities say the FBI will help investigate the shooting of a Sikh man in a Seattle suburb by a suspect who told the victim "go back to your own country."
The victim, identified by India's foreign minister as Deep Rai, a U.S. national of Indian origin, told police that a man approached him as he worked on his car in his driveway Friday in the city of Kent. He says they got into an argument before the gunman shot him in the arm. Rai is expected to recover.
Kent Police Chief Ken Thomas told The Associated Press in an email Sunday that no arrests have been made and that the FBI had agreed to help the department with the investigation.
