Indian American Sikh Shot Dead In California’s Oakland City

A 45-year-old Indian American was shot dead by an unidentified gunman in California, prompting police to announce a USD 10,000 reward money for information leading to the arrest of the killer. SF Gate reported earlier today, Oct 8, that Oakland police investigators have identified a 23-year-old man ‘Joevan Lopez’ for shooting 45-year-old Jasvir Singh. Lopez was described as 5 feet 7 inches tall and 158 pounds, with dreadlocks.
Jasvir Singh was fatally shot inside his ice-cream van on Saturday in California’s Oakland city, San Jose Mercury News reported. According to residents of the locality, a gunman approached Mr Singh, shot him inside his van and ran away through the backyards.
Local residents described the horror of the broad day-light killing and expressed their fears of rising crimes on the streets of Oakland city.
“I don’t understand why someone would murder our ice cream man,” said Paula, a nearby resident.
“I heard five shots and came to my front door. I just feel really bad; he was doing his job, and now he’s gone,” she added.
