Sacramento, CA - Sacramento County Sheriff's Homicide detectives have developed information that now leads them to believe Amandeep Singh Dhami is the second suspect responsible for the August 31, 2008 shooting at the Sacramento Sikh Society Temple.
The shooting claimed the life of 26-year-old Parmjit Pamma Singh. A second 38-year-old male was also wounded by the gunfire; he remains hospitalized and is expected to survive.
A warrant has been issued for Dhami's arrest on the charge of murder.
Investigators believe Dhami has traveled away from the Sacramento area and may be trying to leave the country.
Dhami is a 24-year-old East Indian male. He's 5'11" tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. He should be considered armed and dangerous.
Detectives believe Dhami and a friend of his, 24-year-old Gurpreet Singh Gosal, arrived at the temple and intentionally targeted Singh.
They also believe the 38-year-old male who was shot was an innocent victim.
Gosal was captured by witnesses and turned over to deputies when they arrived on the scene. Dhami fled from the scene in a vehicle. Furthermore, detectives believe the shooting was motivated by an on-going dispute between Dhami's and Singh's families.
