A Kansas man who fatally shot a bar patron from India that he called a “terrorist,” according to prosecutors, and who wounded two others pleaded guilty Monday to federal hate crime charges.
Adam Purinton, 53, entered his guilty plea in Kansas federal court to a three-count indictment, which includes hate crime and firearm charges.
Prosecutors said Purinton fatally shot Srinivas Kuchibhotla, an engineer from India, and wounded his friend Alok Madasani, also from India, while they were at Austins Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas, last February.
