Police in Baltimore launched a homicide investigation this week following the shooting death of an Indian software engineer, reports CBS13.

Officers found Sai Charan Nakka, 25, shot in the head in his SUV after a single-vehicle crash on southbound Interstate 95 near the Caton Avenue exit.

According to the Business Standard, he had just dropped his friend off at the airport.

Emergency personnel rushed him to the University of Maryland R. Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center where doctors pronounced him dead shortly after.

His parents told News9 they did not want their son to come to the United States.

“We wanted him to be here,” said his father N Narasimha from the Nalgonda region of Telangana in India. “I told him not to go, but he insisted and we allowed him to realize his wish. We never imagined he would come back as a dead body.”

Sai Charan went to the United States in 2020 to complete his Master of Science. He decided to stay in Maryland where he had been working for six months.

Narasimha urged the U.S. government not to issue gun licenses “indiscriminately.”

“We messaged him on Saturday. But there was no response. We messaged him again, but we thought that may be due to work he did not reply,” his mother Padma said tearfully.
