Purinton is also accused of shooting 24-year-old Ian Grillot, who was wounded while trying to intervene during the shooting at Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas, on Wednesday.

The alleged shooter, Adam W. Purington, used "racial slurs" before opening fire and yelled, "Get out of my country," witnesses told reporters. The other two, Madasani and 24-year-old Ian P. Grillot, were wounded and are reportedly recovering.

Kuchibhotla and Madasani, both 32, were engineers working with USA technology company Garmin.

A Navy veteran killed one Indian man and shot another in a Kansas bar, screaming "Get out of my country!", moments before he started blasting away, police said.

He was charged with first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Indian External Affairs Ministry spokesman Vikas Swarup said Indian consulate officials from Houston and Dallas were sent to Kansas City to meet with Madasani and facilitate the return of Kuchibhotla's body to India.

A GoFundMe campaign for the victims has raised A$958,000 since it was launched yesterday, Kansas City News reported.

"We've read many times in newspapers of some kind of shooting happening", she said.

Mr Kuchibhotla's family told the media they wanted justice and termed the killing a hate crime.

Joshi also met the Indian community in Olathe, shocked and frightened following this incident on Wednesday night, and the injured Indian Alok Madasani.

The only who died was her husband, Srinivas Kuchibhotla, who received a master's degree at the University of Texas after arriving from India.

Madasani, an engineer who works for Garmin International, said he reported the initial incident to a manager, resulting in the Purinton being thrown out of the bar.

India's foreign minister Sushma Swaraj said she "conveyed my condolences to the family" of the victim, assuring that "all help and assistance" would be provided. "I appeal to all the parents in India not to send their children to the USA in the present circumstances", said Madasani.

Jaganmohan Reddy, Madasani's father, said he thought it was a hate crime.

The suspect, who was not armed at the time, was arrested without incident, according to cops in Clinton, Mo. While we can't exclusively blame him for the existence of bigotry, racism and evil (though it is certainly tempting), we do know that he is, in fact, responsible for fostering the kinds of conditions under which hate crimes and threats against minorities can and do thrive.

The men were both engineers for the Garmin technology company.

It also clearly stated about the involvement and the deep concern of Indian government in this case, Government of India has taken up the matter with US authorities to express deep concern and have asked for a speedy investigation.
