INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Members of Indianapolis’ tight-knit Sikh community are calling for gun reforms as they mourn the deaths of four Sikhs who were among the eight people fatally shot at a FedEx warehouse. More than 200 people attended a vigil at an Indianapolis park Saturday evening where Sikh leaders and city officials demanded action that would prevent such attacks from happening again. Kiran Deol attended the vigil in support of family members affected by the shooting. He emphasized that anyone who tries to buy a firearm should be required to have their background checked. Police say the gunman used two assault rifles that he had purchased legally last year.
