They also recovered a firearm they believe was used in the shooting.

"We don't know exactly what happened right before the shooting, we can speculate based on the video, but it did not appear that there was a struggle of any type," said Clovis Police Dept. Sgt. Jim Koch.

Investigators said the victim and Singh previously had a dating relationship.

The victim's family did not want to speak on camera, but disputed that claim, saying the two were just friends.
