Multiple people injured after large fight at Greenwood Sikh temple

Monday, 16 Apr, 2018

Green Wood Assistant Police Chief Matthew Fillenwarth maintains medics and police responded Sunday into some verbal and physical struggle between about 150 folks in the Gurdwara Sikh temple.

The brawl reportedly resulted from an anticipated transition of leadership power.

Four people suffered minor injuries and have been admitted to the hospital.

Delegates take part in the annual election meeting of The Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee (SGPC) at The Golden Temple in Amritsar, Pakistan, November 22, 2008. Fillenwarth says it's believed that there was a worship service going on when the fight broke out. They will be later questioned by the police.

Sing said there had been disagreement on how the temple should be run for a while now, with tensions boiling over into Sunday's altercation.

The police are reviewing the surveillance video from the temple to know the exact sequence of events.

Witnesses at the scene told 24-Hour News 8 that people were attacked with the pepper spray, but it was unclear how many people were injured or the extent of their injuries. No arrests have been made so far.
