New Delhi: India has received a report on the shootout incident resulting in the death of its national in Washington state of the United state and is coordinating with the investigative agencies, External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj said on Saturday.

The minister also said that the Indian Consulate in San Francisco was helping the family of 26-year-old Vikram Jaryal, who was shot dead allegedly by two masked robbers.

"The victim was only 26 years old and had reached US only 25 days back. He was working at the gas station of a family friend," she said.

Jaryal, who worked as a clerk at AM-PM Gas Station in Yakima city, was behind the counter when the incident happened. His family on Friday sought Swaraj's help to bring his body back.

"On 6 April two miscreants entered the shop at 1.30 am. They snatched cash from victim and shot on his chest. This resulted in his death," Swaraj said.

"Our consulate in San Francisco is helping the family and following this up with the Police authorities," she added. Jaryal hailed from Hoshiarpur district in Punjab.
