In triple shooting yesterday at Austin’s Bar & Grill in Olathe Kansas, three people were shot including two Indians and one American.
The two Indian Associates working in Garmin, Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani were shot. Unfortunately Srinivas was killed in the shooting. Officers conducted a manhunt for the white man and have seemingly arrested a suspect.
The suspect, Adam Purinton was drinking at a bar in an Applebee’s in Clinton, when he was arrested early Thursday, about five hours after the shooting, police said.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla died from the gunshot wound inflicted on him. Kuchibhotla’s friend and Garmin colleague, Alok Madasani, 32, and the third victim, Ian Grillot, are listed in stable condition at the hospital.
As the incident unfolds, the two Indians at the bar were provoked by a white man in his 50s, who consequently got into an argument. The shooter questioned their presence and even asked how they are better than him. To control the situation the Bar management asked the accused to leave from the place. The shooter left only to come back with a gun and shoot them. An American national, Ian Grillot who was at the scene stood up to the shooter and tried to stop him, but unfortunately got injured. The shooter fled from the scene and Srinivas who was originally in critical condition passed away.
Two of the shooting victims were employees of the Aviation Systems Engineering team at Garmin, headquartered in Olathe.
