Two people were shot at a Sikh temple in Sacramento County. 

According to the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office, the shooting occurred around 2:30 p.m. at the Gurdwara Sacramento Sikh Society temple on the 7600 block of Bradshaw Road. 

Both victims are taken to the hospital and are expected to survive. The sheriff’s office said one of them will be arrested. 

Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson Amar Gandhi said the shooting was between two men who knew each other and is not a hate crime. 

According to Gandhi, the confrontation started as a hand-to-hand incident that turned into a shootout. 

One of the suspects is described as an Indian male while the other suspected shooter was taken to the hospital. 

“One suspect during that fight shot a friend of the other suspect,” Gandhi said. “Once the other suspect, who didn’t get shot, gathered himself, he shot at the original shooter and then our second shooter ran off.”

The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that the second shooter who ran off has been arrested as of 8:37 p.m. Sunday.
