Deep Rai, a Sikh man, was shot in his driveway in a suburb of Seattle on Friday. Rai, who survived the attack, has said the shooter yelled, "Go back to your own country" during the attack. Witnesses to the Kansas murder of Srinivas Kuchibhotla and shooting of Alok Madasani, also U.S. residents of Indian origin, reported that the same phrase was invoked by that shooter.
Rai was working on his car when a masked white man approached and asked why he was cleaning his car. The men began arguing and the stranger threatened and assaulted Rai before pushing Rai to the ground and shooting him in the arm. Rai was hospitalized overnight for treatment.
