WASHINGTON, May 6, 2017: An Indian-origin couple was killed in the US in an apparent revenge attack by their daughter’s ex-boyfriend who was eventually shot dead in a standoff with police.
Mirza Tatlic, 24, fatally shot Naren Prabhu, a Silicon Valley tech executive, and his wife at their home in San Jose, CBS San Francisco reported.
Prabhu’s daughter, who lives in another state, was not present.
“The suspect had been in a dating relationship with the victims’ adult daughter who was not home,” San Jose Police Chief Eddie Garcia said. “The relationship ended last year. The suspect had a history of domestic violence and there was an active criminal restraining order.”
The incident was reported by the victims’ 20-year-old son.

“When officers arrived at the home on Laura Valle Lane they saw an adult man deceased in the front doorway suffering from at least one gunshot wound. Officers learnt from the adult son that his mother and 13-year-old brother along with the suspect were still inside the house,” police said.
A standoff quickly developed with the suspect and a SWAT team was called in.
“As officers were setting up contain and arrest teams, the suspect released the 13-year-old boy,” Garcia said, adding that the suspect refused to surrender.
Officers then went into the house and found two deceased victims and the dead suspect, Garcia. (PTI)
U.S. President Donald Trump on Wednesday revoked the security clearance of former CIA Director John Brennan. We take a look at what that means.
What is a security clearance?
A security clearance allows a person access to classified national security information or restricted areas after completion of a background check. The clearance by itself does not guarantee unlimited access. The agency seeking the clearance must determine what specific area of information the person needs to access.
What are the different levels of security clearance?
There are three levels: Confidential, secret and top secret. Security clearances don’t expire. But, top secret clearances are reinvestigated every five years, secret clearances every 10 years and confidential clearances every 15 years.
Who has security clearances?
According to a Government Accountability Office report released last year, about 4.2 million people had a security clearance as of 2015, they included military personnel, civil servants, and government contractors.
Why does one need a security clearance in retirement?
Retired senior intelligence officials and military officers need their security clearances in case they are called to consult on sensitive issues.
Apparently. But there is no precedent for a president revoking someone’s security clearance. A security clearance is usually revoked by the agency that sought it for an employee or contractor. All federal agencies follow a list of 13 potential justifications for revoking or denying a clearance, which can include criminal acts, lack of allegiance to the United States, behavior or situation that could compromise an individual and security violations.
