An Indian man wounded in an apparently racially motivated shooting that killed his friend at a suburban City bar has told detectives the gunman asked if their “status was legal”.
Johnson County court officials released a redacted affidavit yesterday for 51-year-old Adam Purinton, who is charged with murder and attempted murder in the February 22 shooting at Austins Bar & Grill in Olathe, Kansas.

The shooting killed Srinivas Kuchibhotla and wounded his friend, Alok Madasani. The FBI is investigating the incident as a hate .
The affidavit says Purinton was escorted out of the bar after confronting the two Indian men and opened fire with a handgun after returning about 30 minutes later. A third man, Ian Grillot, was wounded when he intervened.
