• Kansas man charged in shooting of two Indians in possible hate crime

    By Brendan O'Brien and Aditya Kalra MILWAUKEE/NEW DELHI (Reuters) - A Kansas man has been charged with killing an Indian software engineer and wounding two other men when he opened fire in a bar in what federal authorities probed on Friday as a possible hate crime that shocked the victim's home country. The shooting led news bulletins in India and triggered outrage on social media, where people voiced concern that U.S. President Donald Trump's "America First" position on immigration and jobs has fueled a climate of intolerance. Navy veteran Adam Purinton, 51, was charged on Thursday in Johnson County, Kansas, with one count of premeditated first-degree murder and two counts of attempted premeditated first-degree murder, District Attorney Stephen Howe told reporters.
