24-year-old certified firearms instructor and aspiring Los Angeles Police Department officer Sim Sangha of Fremont, Calif. says she feels like she was profiled on the basis of her skin color after she inquired about a possible AR-15 ammo purchase during a shopping trip to a local Dick’s Sporting Goods.

Sangha visited the store on Wednesday of last week. During the shopping trip, she inquired about purchasing 8 boxes of AR-15 ammo but opted against buying them at that time and instead purchased an exercise mask. Police officials say that the employee then notified police about the inquiry, prompting two officers to visit Sangha at her home two days later.

Sangha told NBC Bay Area, “I don’t know if it’s [because of] my skin color or that I’m Indian. I’m not a Muslim, but even if I were, that’s no reason to call police to my home, instantly.

She added, “I feel like I was racially profiled. I have tons of friends who are both law enforcement officers and normal citizens here, and they purchase ammunition all the time in bulk, before the San Bernardino shooting and after that incident as well, and they’ve never been questioned before. They’ve never had the police show up at their house before.” Sangha says she could have provided the store clerk with a copy of her firearms certification if asked.

The officers reportedly apologized to her but argued that it is their job to investigate activities that other residents find “suspicious.”

NBC Bay Area’s Chuck Coppola said, “Freemont police not talking a lot on camera at all about this, but giving us some information off camera.

According to a Fremont Police Department spokeswoman, the department is on high-alert following the deadly Dec. 2 San Bernardino mass shooting.

They singled me out. They singled me out because of the way I look,” claimed Sangha.
