WASH­ING­TON: Nearly seven years after an In­dian na­tional was killed in the US, the FBI and the Las Ve­gas Po­lice have ar­rested a man for al­legedly shoot­ing the 27-year-old worker dead at a gas sta­tion in Cal­i­for­nia, the po­lice said. Man­preet Ghu­man Singh, a na­tive of Punjab’s Ma­jri Kish­newally

vil­lage in Fate­hgarh Sahib town, was work­ing at the gas sta­tion in the re­sort city of South Lake Ta­hoe in Cal­i­for­nia when he was shot dead by an un­known as­sailant on Au­gust 6, 2013.

After years of in­ves­ti­ga­tion, the Fed­eral Bureau of In­ves­ti­ga­tion (FBI) and the Las Ve­gas Metropoli­tan Po­lice De­part­ment po­lice ar­rested 34-year-old Sean Dono­hoe on charges of killing Singh.

“Al­most 7 years ago, on Au­gust 6th, 2013, an un­known man wear­ing a face mask walked into US Gaso­line Sta­tion, at 2470 Lake Ta­hoe Blvd, shot and killed the clerk, Man­preet Singh of South Lake Ta­hoe. The case went cold, but has now been solved,” South Lake Ta­hoe po­lice said in a tweet on Tues­day. Dono­hoe, who lives in Las Ve­gas, was a res­i­dent of South Lake Ta­hoe city at the time of the in­ci­dent.
