Citing the local police, the media report said that the suspect, 32-year-old Inderdeep Singh Gosal, was arrested at the scene, and was charged with second-degree murder.

According to What The Law, second-degree murder charges are applied to cases where the accused did deliberately kill one or more individuals, though the way it was carried out was not planned.

Police identify victim
