A Sikh family in Texas was rattled after several bullets were fired into their northwest Harris County home.

Iqbal Singh’s parents and child were asleep in their home in the Heron Lakes Estates subdivision near Beltway 8 and Highway 249 when bullets flew inches over their heads at 1:43 a.m. on July 5.

The family heard nine shots coming from their backyard, which were captured on surveillance cameras.

Singh reportedly drove home from work that day and found bullet holes through multiple windows and a bedroom’s headboard.


“It feels really scary, especially with a kid,” Singh told KHOU 11. “It’s just so sad. We didn’t expect this.”


The Harris County Sheriff’s Office (HCSO) previously probed the incident. The case has been transferred to investigators for a follow-up investigation.

“It appears that the projectile came from the roadway feeder or along the Beltway 8,” an HCSO spokesperson told KHOU 11. “There is a wooded area south of the homes before the feeder. No nexus for them being targeted, though they are Sikh.”


While Singh initially believed the sheriff’s examination, another family member noted a suspicious vehicle captured on their surveillance cameras at around 11 p.m., 12 a.m. and 1 a.m. before the shooting occurred.

“It doesn’t add up,” Singh said. “You could hear the footsteps. You could feel the shots are really close to the house.”

Singh said his family have never received threats, but they are worried as members of their community have previously been targets of crime in their neighborhood.

“We gotta sleep with one eye open, you know?” Singh said.

The Sikh National Center hosted a community meeting to provide support for the affected family on the night of July 5.

“The concern in the community has been building as these episodes of ignorant people doing ignorant things,” Dr. Hardam Singh Azad, the chairman for the Sikh National Center, reportedly said.

Also Texas is a stand your ground state...

Texas law states that you have no duty to retreat when there is a reasonable belief you are in danger and it extends to your home, vehicle, or job. You can justify the use of deadly force if you believe it was absolutely necessary to prevent a violent crime like sexual assault, kidnapping, murder, or robbery

So if you're in texas, and the Klan is admin cut with you? Legally black out most your house, have the NV going. And do to them what they do to boar. 

Police will show up an hour late, say they can't do anything, and lie about where their friends were standing when they shot at you. 

If they sense we're gonna shoot back effectively and legally we won't be targetted. 


Sssoooooo eeeee sooooo eeee sooo eee sooooo eeeeeeee.....
