Two male Indian Ph.D students were killed at the Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, USA.
The students Chandrasekhar Reddy Komma and Kiran Kumar Allam were both shot once in the head.
The double homicide took place on LSUâ€™s campus late in the evening on Thursday, Dec. 13.
The homicides are said to have occurred at the Edward Gay Apartments, located near the intersection of West Roosevelt Street and Gov. Claiborne Drive, adjacent to the LSU Band practice field.
The names of the two students suggest that they could be from the South Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.Â
The New York Times reported that Allam was in the chemistry program and Komma was a biochemistry student.
The apartment complex in which the students lived is in sight of the transition office of Louisiana’s Governor-elect Bobby Jindal.
