Indian Engineer, Mistaken for Iranian, Shot Dead by Racist Man Possibly Trump Supporter

Feb 28, 2017

Independent Aggregator of Iran-related News/Events, Kodoom.com, According to CNN: The man accused of shooting two technology workers from India and another man at a bar in Kansas last week had his first court appearance on Monday in a high-profile case that is being investigated as a possible hate crime.

Adam Purinton, 51, faces one charge of first-degree murder and two charges of attempted first-degree murder in last Wednesday's shooting in Olathe that killed one person and injured two others. The incident has raised worries among Indians and other communities about possible violence against foreign workers in the United States. But the shooter apparently though he was killing Iranians! In 911 calls released by CNN affiliate KSHB, an Applebee's bartender told police that a man had admitted to shooting two "Iranian" people in Olathe and was looking for a place to hide.

The incident began after a man became agitated with two 32-year-old Indian men, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani, at Austins Bar & Grill, witness Jeremy Luby told CNN. Ian Grillot, a regular at the bar, approached the man and asked him to leave, according to CNN affiliate KMBC. "He said (to Grillot), 'Why are you standing up for them?' He emphasized 'them,' as if 'them' was a derogatory term," Luby told CNN. The suspect left the bar and drove away, according to Grillot. He allegedly returned later and allegedly opened fire in the bar, according to prosecutors. One witness reportedly heard the suspect yell, "Get out of my country" before shooting, the Kansas City Star reports.

Kuchibhotla was killed. Madasani and Grillot survived, according to authorities. Grillot, who was shot in the hand and chest, was praised as a hero for attempting to intervene and subdue the suspect, he said in a video from his hospital bed. Purinton was arrested hours later at an Applebee's restaurant in Clinton, Missouri, about 70 miles away from Olathe.

Kuchibhotla's widow said that she had been worried about violence against foreigners in the United States, but Kuchibhotla had told her not to worry.

According to a report on New York Times, After Kansas Shootings, Indians are wary of Coming to U.S.
