Police say a brawl at a Sikh temple in suburban Indianapolis has left four people with minor injuries.
Greenwood assistant police chief Matthew Fillenwarth says police and medics responded on Monday to a verbal and physical fight involving nearly 150 people at the Gurdwara Sikh temple in the city just south of Indianapolis.
He tells WISH-TV the altercation began as there was a change of leadership within the temple that he says happens every two years. Fillenwarth says it’s believed that there was a worship service going on when the fight broke out.
Fillenwarth says four people suffered minor injuries and were taken to a hospital, where they will be questioned by police.
Police are reviewing surveillance video from the temple and interviewing other participants in the fight.
