Sukhjinder Singh, a 45-year-old Indian man, was shot and killed Feb. 8, 2018, at a gas station at the corner of Valley Street and Raymond Road, according to Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart.

Once they arrived, they discovered Singh had been shot multiple times.

Police believe Singh was an employee at the Citgo station.

He has since been arrested and charged with murder.
