Indian-origin Sikh boy shot dead in Sacramento, CA

SACRAMENTO (TIP): Police in Sacramento, California, are investigating the death of Gurnoor Singh Nahal, a 17-year-old Sikh-American high school student found dead in the garage of his family’s home following reports of a shooting, according to media reports.

Gurnoor Singh Nahal, a 17-year-old Indian-origin Sikh high-school student was shot dead when he was returning home from work at his father’s retail store at 10.30 pm on November 8. The family does not suspect anything was taken and cannot understand why Gurnoor was shot.

“We cannot imagine it. We are lost,” his uncle Tejinderjit Singh was quoted as saying by the CBS Local News.

Nahal’s grandmother found him lying in the garage. She said he cried for help, but it was too late.

“She heard it and it was very loud and I think when she heard that, she came out and then she saw him,” Singh said. Gurnoor was supposed to graduate this spring.
