Inslee Calls Apparent Hate-crime Shooting "Un-American"

(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington Governor Jay Inslee calls the shooting of a Kent man who's a member of the Sikh [[ seek ]] faith "hateful, detestable, and un-American."  Authorities say the victim was in his driveway Friday when a man walked up to him, pushed him to the ground as he called him names and told him "go home to your country" before pulling out a gun and shooting him in the arm.  The victim is a citizen of the U.S. and is from India's Punjab province.  Kent police say the attack doesn't appear to be a random incident but is likely a hate crime.
