NRI Jaspal Singh, 46, and Geeta Singh, 55 found dead of gunshot wounds at their home in Long Island. Last Tuesday, their son Josh, 13, and Ankur, 12, who returned home from school afternoon and when their mother did not respond to their knocks at the locked front door. They used a spare key to gain entry and they found their parents slain, their father on the ground floor and their mother in a second floor bedroom.

After the finding, one of the boys ran screaming across the street to a neighbor, who called police. "He was yelling, 'Call 911,' my dad is on the floor and he's not breathing,'" said Michael Moore, 13, who lives across the street. "They [boys] were saying, 'How could this happen to us?'"

On Wednesday, Det. Lt. Michael Fleming, Nassau's Homicide Squad commander, offered few specifics about the investigation. "At this stage, we have not come to any decision as to what motive might have been in this case," Fleming told reporters. "So while I would like to share details about evidence with you, I'm not going to do so."

One neighbors said that Mrs. Geeta Singh took care of the boys full time and that Mr. Jaspal Singh managed a furniture store in Lower Manhattan and was the co-owner of a gas station on Long Island.

Prior to this, Jaspal Singh was a manager at Economy Foam, where he started work 20 years ago as a salesman. They had moved into the house less than a year ago. They emigrated from Punjab state nearly two decades ago.

Jaspal's brother Joginder Singh said he is making all arrangement of funeral and the boys are ok with me.

Tony Khanna, 46, a cousin of Geeta Singh who traveled from Pennsylvania said, "It's so raw, so painful. It's still just unbelievable, how anyone could do something like this."
