Tragedy struck for the family of a 27-year-old woman engineer from Telangana as she was among the nine individuals killed in a mass shooting near Dallas, Texas, in the US on April 6.
The young woman, who was not identified by name, was among those who lost their lives in the shooting incident. She was a promising engineer, having graduated from a prominent engineering college in India before moving to the US for work.
The shooting, which occurred at a business complex in the city of Plano, claimed the lives of eight others as well, and left one person injured. The gunman, who was later identified as the estranged husband of one of the victims, reportedly opened fire during a party that was being held at the residence.

The news of the young engineer's tragic death has sent shockwaves throughout the Telangana community in India. Many have taken to social media to express their condolences, with some calling for greater action to be taken to prevent such senseless acts of violence from occurring in the future.
The Indian government has also expressed its condolences to the family of the victim and has promised to offer all necessary assistance in this difficult time.
The incident is yet another reminder of the need for greater gun control measures in the US, where mass shootings have become all too common in recent years. As the nation mourns the loss of nine innocent lives, it is imperative that steps are taken to prevent such tragedies from happening again.
