Shooting at Sikh temple in Stockton leaves 3 people in hospital

STOCKTON, Calif. —

Three people were injured in a shooting at a Northern California Sikh temple, authorities said.

Officers found three victims – ages 32, 28 and 27 – at the Gurdwara Sahib Sikh Temple in Stockton, the police department said. First responders transported all of them to the hospital for what they said appeared to be non-life-threatening injuries.

The shooting happened during an event at the temple around 6:42 p.m. on Saturday, Stockton police spokesperson Joseph Silva said.

"A disturbance broke out between the suspects and victims which resulted in an exchange of gunfire," Silva said.

Police believe the two male suspects, who were still at large Sunday, are also Sikh. Police did not release any other suspect information as of publication.

All three victims are also Sikh, according to police.
