US: Accused held 7 yrs after Punjab-origin man’s murder
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.
