Indian-origin man shot dead in parked car in New York

New York, June 27

A 31-year-old Indian-origin man was shot dead in Queens here as he sat in a borrowed SUV parked down the street from his home, days after an Indian national was killed after sustaining an apparent gunshot wound to his head in the US state of Maryland.

Satnam Singh was sitting behind the wheel of a black Jeep Wrangler Sahara that was parked in South Ozone Park when a gunman approached and started shooting at him around 3.45 pm on Saturday, a report in The New York Daily News said. The police said Satnam lived just down the street from where he was shot.

Satnam was struck in the chest and neck and was rushed to a local hospital, where he died later, according to the police. It appears that Satnam had borrowed the car from a friend a short time earlier and needed it to pick someone up, the police said.

Detectives were trying to “determine if the gunman was aiming at Satnam or was hoping to kill the SUV’s owner and was unaware who was inside,” the report said, adding that no arrests have been made so far in the case.
