Man admits to hate crimes in Kansas bar shooting
May 20, 2018
KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Kansas man who yelled "Get out of my country!" before killing one Indian immigrant and wounding another in a suburban Kansas City bar pleaded guilty Monday to three federal hate-crime charges.
Adam Purinton, 53, of Olathe, Kansas, previously pleaded guilty to first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder in state court in the February 2017 death of 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla. The shooting in Olathe, Kansas, also wounded Kuchibhotla's friend, Alok Madasani, and bar patron Ian Grillot when he tried to intervene.
