to visit the houses of his customers. A man was tailing him, Alforque said.

The man took out a pistol and shot Singh, then fled aboard a tricycle.

Residents nearby took Singh to a nearby hospital but the Indian eventually died from his wound.

Based on their initial investigation, police found that Singh had all his belongings, including money, that he had carried with him.
