In St. Louis, authorities have detained a local man linked to the tragic demise of a Washington University international student, who was on the brink of a promising career in dance.

The incident occurred shortly after 7 p.m. on February 27, on the 5100 block of Delmar Boulevard near Clarendon Avenue, situated in the Academy neighborhood.

Amarnath Ghosh was discovered on the street, suffering from several gunshot wounds. Despite efforts, Ghosh was declared dead at the scene. At 34 years old, he was found not far from his residence.
