SAN FRANCISCO (Diya TV) — A 17-year-old high school student was found dead in the garage of a Sacramento home, police said Wednesday.
Sacramento police reported receiving a call of a shooting at 10:40 p.m. Tuesday in the 5700 block of Kandinsky Way in the town. Just ten minutes before, Inderkum High School student Gurnoor Singh was driving home from his job at his father’s retail store.
“All I heard was a gunshot and then after that, there was like somebody crying and then police came,” Singh’s neighbor Emily Thao told NBC Sacramento.
When officers arrived to the scene of the reported shooting, they found Singh laying dead in his garage. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
“I saw him laying out on the ground and blood was on his side,” said Uncle, Tejiderjit Singh.
His family believes Singh was followed home from work and that the shooter may have been after the cash that was inside the car; collected from the family business that day. But, the money was never taken.
“We extend our sympathy to his family and friends, and we’re reaching out to provide support,” the Natomas Unified School District said in a released statement. “This is a difficult day for Inderkum and a sad time for the Natomas community.”
Homicide investigators have spent time canvassing the area looking for evidence and have reportedly spoken to potential witnesses.
