Telugu Student From Andhra Pradesh Killed in US Supermarket Shooting

Tragedy struck an Andhra Pradesh family as 32-year-old Dasari Gopikrishna, a student from Bapatla district, was shot and killed while working at a supermarket in the United States.

Gopikrishna, originally from Yajali in Karlapalem mandal, had moved to the US eight months prior seeking better opportunities. Local reports indicate he was working at the supermarket counter on Saturday afternoon when a gunman entered and opened fire. Critically injured, Gopikrishna was rushed to the hospital but succumbed to his wounds on Sunday while undergoing treatment.

This senseless act of violence has plunged Gopikrishna’s family and the Yajali community into deep mourning. He is survived by his wife and son.

Surveillance footage from nearby CCTV cameras reportedly captured the entire incident. The footage shows the assailant entering the store, shooting Gopikrishna, and then fleeing the scene.
