21 year old arrested for murder of a Indian in US

Houston, June 25, 2024: Police in the US state of Texas have arrested a man in connection with the killing of a 32-year-old Indian national during a robbery at a convenience store in Dallas.

Dasari Gopikrishna, who came to the US only eight months ago, was shot dead  at the convenience store in Pleasant Grove, Dallas, on June 21.


He hailed from the Yajali village of the Bapatla district in Andhra Pradesh.

Police have arrested 21-year-old Davonta Mathis for murdering Gopikrishna.

He faces capital murder charges for fatally shooting Gopikrisna multiple times, including in the head.

During the robbery, Mathis walked into the store, approached the counter and shot Gopikrishna. He stole items before running away, police said.

Gopikrishna was taken to the hospital in critical condition and later died.

Mathis was originally arrested and charged with robbery, but the charge was upgraded to capital murder because of Gopikrishna’s death.

His bond is set at USD 7.5 million.
