The FBI is also investigating the case as a possible federal hate crime.
Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, was fatally shot. Two other men, Alok Madasani, 32, and Ian Grillot, 24, were wounded.
Kuchibhotla and Madasani worked together at Garmin Ltd.
They are of Indian descent, and witnesses said Purinton allegedly made bigoted remarks to them before the shooting, including telling them to “get out of my country.”
He had previously left the bar and returned with a weapon, according to a GoFundMe page for Grillot.
The U.S. Embassy in India released a statement Friday condemning the shooting.
Grillot was shot after intervening to help the other men, according to witnesses.
A GoFundMe account set up for Kuchibhotla’s family had raised more than $369,000 by Friday afternoon.
