Washington: An Indian-origin man has been killed during a robbery by two hooded attackers in Ohio, becoming one of the latest victims of gun violence in the US. Karunakar Karengle, 53, was working last Monday at the Jiffy Convenience Mart on Camelot Drive when two men came in with a firearm around 10 pm, police said. Police said Karengle died of his injuries on Friday. His identity had been withheld until his family in India was notified, Journal News reported. No arrests have been made, making nearby businesses and employees a bit uneasy. The shooting comes amidst growing attacks on Indians and Americans of Indian descent in recent months. Earlier this month, a 30-year-old Indian national pursuing his Masters in Chicago was seriously injured after he was shot in his right cheek by an unidentified assailant. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a software engineer from India, was fatally shot in Olathe, Kansas, in February by a US navy veteran. Weeks later, a Sikh man was shot in his arm in his driveway in Kent, Washington state, by a masked man. pti
