Kansas: Injured says gunman asked about visas first

A man injured in the Kansas City shooting has said the alleged gunman asked two of the victims about their visa status before firing. 

A 32-year-old Indian engineer was killed in the incident while another Indian was injured. 

Witnesses claimed the attack was racially motivated, and the gunman had yelled at the two Indians to get out of his country.

One man, 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla, was killed. Two other men, 32-year-old Alok Madasani and 24-year-old Ian Grillot, were injured.

Madasani told the New York Times on Friday night, Purinton “asked us what visa are we currently on and whether we are staying here illegally”.

Both men were educated in the US and were working in the country legally.

Madasani told the Times: “We didn’t react. People do stupid things all the time. This guy took it to the next level.”

Madasani said he went to get a manager and by the time he returned to the patio, the man was being escorted out.
