Conservative Iraqi Refugee Gunned Down in Sacramento

Eric Dolan reports:
A Muslim man who was gunned down in the parking lot of a Home Depot store in Sacramento, California, was targeted because of his religion, according to authorities.

Detectives have named Jeffrey Michael Caylor, 44, as the shooting suspect. Caylor is currently in custody on unrelated charges and will face a charge of murder for this incident upon his extradition to Sacramento County Jail, according to the sheriff’s office.

“It seems he has a dislike for what he describes as a Muslim community,” Sheriff’s Department Sergeant Jim Barnes said.Caylor was previously convicted of attempted murder in 1992.

Alawsi was politically conservative, and a fan of both George W. Bush and Sarah Palin, according to his Facebook page. Alawsi studied art history at the University of Baghdad in Iraq before fleeing to the United States.
