Gujarat man robbed, shot dead in Florida
Twenty-eight-year-old Malav Desai, a native of Valsad district in Gujarat, was robbed and shot dead at point blank range inside a general store in Florida, US, on Tuesday. Desai had been working at a motel, in Florida for five years, after he completed his hotel management degree. Sources said the victim had taken a three-day leave from his job on Monday and gone to fill in for a friend who ran a general store in Florida.
“On Tuesday evening, two teenagers entered the shop and threatened Malav at gunpoint to hand over all the cash.
Malav, who was sitting at the cash counter, did as told. The boys also asked him to hand over the gold chain and the bracelet that he was wearing. Malav requested them to spare the chain as it was gifted by his wife. The duo did not relent and he was forced to hand them over. However, before fleeing, one of them fired two rounds at Malav from the pistol. One hit his head, while the other hit his right shoulder. Malav died on the spot,” said Girish Desai, the uncle of the deceased.
