Man Charged in Shooting That Targeted Foreigners: 'Get Out of My Country'

Cops arrested the suspect at his home in Clinton Mo. some 80 miles away from the bar

After a shooting in an Olathe, Kansas bar on Wednesday left one man dead and two others injured, the FBI is investigating whether the attack was a hate crime.

Mr Kuchibhotla's colleague, Alok Madsani, 32, was also shot during the incident at Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe on Wednesday evening.

A man injured in a fatal shooting in suburban Kansas City that witnesses say was racially motivated has said the alleged gunman asked two of the victims about their visa status before later returning and opening fire, killing one and wounding another.

Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, died. The BBC takes a closer look at the two men and an American, Ian Grillot, who was also injured.

Purinton was taken into custody just after midnight on Thursday morning at an Applebee's about 112 kilometres to the southeast of Olathe in Clinton, Mo., authorities said.

He has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of attempted premeditated first degree murder.

Sunayana said Srinivas came to the United States in 2005 to pursue a master's degree at the University of Texas at El Paso and worked for six years in Iowa before moving to Kansas City. His parents, Madhusudhan Rao and Vardhini Rao, were too stunned by news of his death to comment, the Associated Press reported. "US Government while condemning the attack, have assured us that they are conducting a thorough investigation into the matter", Indian Embassy spokesman Pratik Mathur said in a separate statement earlier in the day.




"I wonder what the United States government will do to stop hate crimes against minorities", Dumala added. "Love each other" was the overarching theme as visitors were greeted with solemn but spirit-filled musical numbers before prayers were offered for the families of Kuchibhotla, Madasani and Ian Grillot.

He has not been charged with a hate crime.

India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said she "conveyed my condolences to the family" of the victim, assuring that "all help and assistance" would be provided. The bartender quietly called police, and Purinton, a U.S. Navy veteran, former air traffic controller and private pilot, was arrested without incident about five hours after the shooting.

"I thought his magazine was empty. Law enforcement here in KS will continue to thoroughly investigate this crime". Madasani was subsequently released from the hospital, and Grillot is recovering.

Madasani's father, Jaganmohan Reddy, said he learned about the shooting from his oldest son, who lives in Dallas.

Garmin confirmed the two men worked at the company, and said in a statement it was devastated by what it described as a senseless tragedy.

This after the Indian embassy said that the Government of India had taken up the matter with U.S. authorities and demanded a speedy probe.
