‘I need an answer’ says Sunayana Dumala, widow of Kansas shooting victim
The wife of a man who was killed in a shooting at a suburban Kansas City bar says she wonders what the U.S. will do to stop hate crimes against minorities. In the middle of a crowded bar, Adam Purinton yelled at two Indian men to “get out of my country,” witnesses said, then opened fire in an attack that killed one of the men and wounded the other, as well as a third man who tried to help. Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, came to the U.S. in 2005 to pursue a master’s degree at the University of Texas at El Paso. He worked in Iowa for six years before moving to the Kansas City area, his widow said Friday at a news conference organized by her husband’s employer, the GPS device-maker Garmin.
