Indian engineer shot dead in US

An Indian engineer has been killed and another wounded in a shooting being investigated by US authorities in the midwestern state of Kansas as a possible hate crime.

The two men, one of whom reportedly had lived in the US for more than a decade, were shot at a bar outside Kansas City late on Wednesday, according to The Kansas City Star newspaper.

Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was killed and Alok Madasani, 32, was wounded in the attack. Both men worked as aviation systems engineers for GPS manufacturer Garmin.

Authorities arrested 51-year-old Adam Purinton, who allegedly told the men “get out of my country” before opening fire, according to the daily.

Purinton was apprehended later the same night at a restaurant, after claiming he had killed two Middle Easterners, according to the Star.

Purinton has been charged with premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of attempted premeditated first-degree murder. He is being held on a $2 million bond.

The FBI is trying to determine if the shooting was a hate crime, said Eric Johnson, Special Agent in Charge of the bureau’s Kansas City field office.
