HYDERABAD – A 27-year-old woman from Hyderabad, Telangana, was among the eight individuals who were shot dead by a gunman in Texas, U.S. on Sunday. The deceased was working as a project manager with a private company in Dallas and was reportedly out shopping at a mall with her fiancé when the man opened fire at a crowd. 

According to The Hindu, Aishwarya Reddy Thatikonda, a resident of Saroornagar in Hyderabad and a daughter of a district judge in Ranga Reddy district court, was staying in Dallas, Texas. 

Reports confirmed that Aishwarya was among the eight killed when the man, identified as Mauricio Garcia, carrying a gun had fired upon a crowd at a mall in Texas. Aishwarya’s fiance was also reportedly injured in the shooting but was declared as out of danger after the doctors removed two bullets from his body. 

Garcia, who is from Dallas, fired on shoppers at the Allen Premium Outlets mall, in the north Dallas suburbs with an AR-15 rifle, before he was shot dead by a police officer who was responding to a different call in the vicinity. The investigators suspect he may have had far-right links, as suggested by a clothing patch he wore. “The patch bore the letters RWDS, standing for “Right Wing Death Squad” – believed to be a neo-Nazi group,” reports said.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya’s family from Hyderabad is said to be in touch with a few organisations and Indian officials in the United States to bring the body back home.
