The Accused In The Shooting Of Indian Couple Had A History Of Domestic Violence
Washington, D.C.: Mirza Tatlic, 24, who shot and killed an Indian couple in San Hose on Wednesday night and was eventually shot in a standoff by police, had a history of domestic violence, San Hose Police Chief Eddie Garcia said.
There was an active criminal restraining order against Tatlic, Garcia said.
Tatlic killed Naren Prabhu, a tech executive in Silicon Valley, and his wife in their home at Laura Valle Lane. The accused was an ex-boyfriend of Prabhu’s daughter and was allegedly disturbed by the broken relationship that ended a year ago.
The police found Prabhu struggling with at least one gun shot at the entrance door. Prabhu’s adult son informed the police about the situation at his house. When the police arrived, the accused was still inside the house along with Naren’s wife and his 13-year-old son, who was later, released by the accused after the SWAT and arrest teams had arrived.
Soon, there was a standoff and at one point the accused is said to have pointed gun at the police officers through the window, and the police had to fire in order to protect its members. Tatlic was eventually killed in the firing.
The police finally made their way inside the house only to find Naren’s wife dead.
