An elderly man shot his daughter-in-law to death at a Walmart parking lot after she reportedly planned to divorce his son in South San Jose, California.

The body of the victim, identified as Gurpreet Kaur Dosanjh, a Walmart employee, was discovered in her car in the parking lot of a Walmart in South San Jose, California by a coworker on Friday, Sept. 30. She was suffering from at least two gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead at the scene, East Bay Times reported.

A preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was on the phone on Friday, Sept. 30 afternoon with her uncle. She told her uncle that she saw her father-in-law, Sital Singh Dosanjh, 74, an Indian-American man, driving in the lot and that he must have traveled 150 miles to find her.

According to Gurpreet's uncle, his niece sounded “frightened” and told him that Sital was approaching her car. He told the officers that this was the last thing he heard before the phone call got disconnected. Gurpreet's body was discovered in the same parking lot five hours later, India Today reported.

The uncle told investigators that his niece “was in the process of divorcing (the) suspect’s son,” and added that the husband and his father lived in Fresno, about 150 miles from the crime scene.

Following the gruesome discovery, the victim’s uncle, who was the last person to hear his niece alive, drove from the Central Valley, arrived at the crime scene, and helped investigators formally identify Sital as the likely suspect.

According to the surveillance video obtained from the crime scene, Sital's black Silverado pickup truck was seen entering the parking lot on Friday, driving up near his daughter-in-law's car, and then leaving the lot. The license plate reading cameras in Gilroy, surveillance cameras on Pacheco Pass, and Sital's cell phone records also charted his drive back to Fresno over the next few hours after the shooting.

Following this, Sital was arrested at his home in Fresno the next day morning, on Saturday, Oct. 1. When the officers searched the residence, police seized a .22-caliber Beretta pistol. After his arrest, Sital was transported to the Main Jail in San Jose, where he was held without bail. He was ordered to return to court on Nov. 14.
