The US gunman who killed an Indian techie in a Kansas bar pleads guilty to federal charges. The shooter, Adam Purinton, had already pleaded guilty to state charges for murder and attempted murder earlier this month. In February 2017, Purinton had approached Srinivas Kuchibhotla and Alok Madasani at a bar, demanding to know where they were from, calling one a terrorist and shouting, “Get out of my country!” Two other patrons escorted him out of the bar.
