A 23-year-old student from Hyderabad was on Sunday shot dead allegedly by unidentified men in the United States, the victim's relatives said.
Four rounds were fired at Sai Kiran around 12.15 pm on Sunday after he refused to give his mobile phone which was demanded by the assailants, his uncle Shravan Kumar said.
"We received information from his friends that some people demanded his phone on which he was already talking. His friend on the other end of the call heard four rounds of gun shots being fired. We are awaiting more details," Kumar told PTI.
The incident happened near Sai Kiran's residence in Florida, he said, adding that he had gone to the States one-and-a-half-month ago.
