Washington/IBNS: A 26-year-old Indian doctoral student was shot dead inside a car in the US state of Ohio.

Aaditya Adlakha was a fourth-year doctoral student in the molecular and developmental biology programme at the University of Cincinnati Medical School, according to a statement from the medical school, WXIX-TV reported.

The university described the incident as “sudden, tragic and senseless”.

Aaditya Adlakha died earlier this month at the UC Medical Center, according to the Hamilton County Coroner’s Office.

On November 9, Cincinnati Police Lt. Jonathan Cunningham said officers found a man shot inside a vehicle that crashed into a wall on the upper deck of the Western Hills Viaduct.

ShotSpotter, a gunfire locator service, reported there was gunfire in the area around 6:20 am, police said.

Drivers passing by called 911 to report a vehicle that had bullet holes in it with a person inside who had been shot, said Cunningham.

Aaditya Adlakha was transported to UC Medical Center where he was in critical condition and was pronounced dead two days later.
