Mangalore Today News Network

New York, June 11, 2024: A 33-year-old Indian-origin man in New York killed his younger brother and injured his mother before taking his own life, according to the New York Police Department’s crime scene unit.


Karamjit Multani, 33, shot his 27-year-old brother Vipanpal Multani dead and also shot his mother in the stomach in their Richmond Hill home before turning the gun on himself.

The family had been enjoying a quiet evening with pizza but at around 10:30 pm, Karamjit entered Vipanpal’s room and shot him without warning, according to Bhupinder Multani, the brothers’ father, reported CBS News.

The father managed to escape and seek help from a neighbour, who called 911.

The neighbour entered the house and found Vipanpal Multani shot and pleading for help.

"He told me, ’Please, don’t let me die," the neighbour said. "He died in my hands later," reported CBS News.

The neighbour said 33-year-old Karamjit, who was married with three young kids and financially stable, showed no signs of aggression and they had no idea he had a gun, reported CBS News.

The father was in disbelief as he attended to his injured wife and tried to cope with the loss of his two sons.

"There weren’t big problems. Just small disagreements, nothing major," the father said when asked if there were any issues between his sons.

"Karamjit was one of the nicest, coolest guys, always joking around. What could have been going through his mind to make him explode like that?" said Jaspreet Singh, the brother-in-law of the two brothers.

The reason behind such violence against his own family wasn’t immediately clear.
