New York: A 31-year-old Indian-origin man was shot dead while sitting in a parked SUV in New York, according to reports, days after an Indian national was killed after sustaining an apparent gunshot wound to his head in Maryland.

Satnam Singh was found sitting in the car in the South Ozone Park section of Queens with gunshot wounds in his neck and torso, the New York Post newspaper reported quoting police.

Singh was sitting in the Jeep Wrangler Sahara when a gunman approached and started shooting. Singh was rushed to Jamaica Hospital, where doctors pronounced him dead.

Although police said the gunman approached Singh on foot, neighbours said the shots came from a silver-coloured sedan as it passed the Jeep. The shooting was caught on the security cameras of a neighbour, which police personnel are reviewing. Detectives were trying to determine if the gunman was aiming at Singh or was hoping to kill the SUV’s owner and was unaware who was inside.
No arrests have been made so far.
