In Kansas, police have charged a 51-year-old man with first-degree murder after he allegedly shouted “Get out of my country” before firing on a pair of Indian men at a restaurant in suburban Kansas City. The gunfire killed 32-year-old Srinivas Kuchibhotla. His friend and a bystander who confronted the shooter were injured. Witnesses say Adam Purinton was drinking and spouting racial slurs before he opened fire. Purinton fled the scene and was arrested hours later after telling a bartender in Clinton, Missouri, he had just shot two Middle Eastern men. Police have said it’s too early in their investigation to determine if they’ll charge Purinton with a hate crime.
