An Indian-American man in the Atlanta, Ga., state is in severe condition after being shot late June 12 at his place of work, according to statements.
Sameer Hasmukh Patel, 24, a resident of Gujarat’s Patan district, was shot following 2 suspects robbed the departmental store in which he worked, according to various Indian media news.
Patel, who was closing the store at the time of the incident, was transported to a hospital to be treated for his injuries. Reports have stated that he remains in severe condition.
The 2 suspects, caught on the security camera doing the crime, allegedly stole money from the register & escaped the scene.
