Seg. 1: Olathe Shooting Anniversary. Seg. 2: Safety In KC.
Segment 1: The South Asian community a year after the Olathe shooting.
A year ago, two friends met for a drink at an Olathe bar. An older regular got agitated and reportedly told them to "get out of my country" before opening fire, killing Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injuring Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot.
