An American national, Ian Grillot, 24, who tried to intervene had also been injured in the attack.

"Today's guilty verdict will not bring back my Srinu", Kuchibhotla's widow, Sunayana Dumala, said in a statement, according to PTI.

A U.S. Navy veteran pleaded guilty to premeditated first degree murder of Indian techie Srinivas Kuchibhotla and injuring two others before a Kansas court on March 6.

A man charged with killing an Indian American engineer and wounding another in a shooting previous year at a suburban Kansas City bar pleaded guilty March 6 to premeditated first-degree murder. Before he changed his plea, Judge Charles Droege told Purinton that reversing his stance meant that he would face life in prison, a minimum of 146 months and maximum of 653 months in prison for attempted murder, and another sentence if he is convicted of a hate crime in federal court, kcur.org reported.

Adam Purinton has pleaded guilty to the February 2017 murder of Srinivas Kuchibhotla and the attempted murder of Alok Madasani and Ian Grillot.

The man accused of shooting three people and killing one in a Kansas bar a year ago pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree murder and two counts of first-degree attempted murder in a Johnson County courtroom Tuesday.

Trading Watch on Shares of Ross Stores Inc (ROST)
After $0.72 actual EPS reported by Ross Stores, Inc . for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts 29.17% EPS growth. Earnings per share (EPS) are the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock.

The incident began after a Purinton allegedly became agitated with the two 32-year-olds who were having a drink after work. Madasani was shot in the leg and Grillot, who had set off after the gunman, in the arm and chest. He was arrested hour later at a restaurant in Clinton, Missouri, 112 km away from Olathe.

A White House spokeswoman then condemned the shooting, telling reporters that the shooting appears to be "an act of racially motivated hatred". "I told him many times, 'Should we think about going back?" He fired at least eight shots at the two men, hitting Kuchibhotla several times and hitting Madasani in the thigh.

Prosecutors have said that Purinton verbally harassed Kuchibhotla and another Indian man before he was thrown out of the business.

His sentencing is scheduled for 4 May.

A peace walk is planned to honor Kuchibhotla on Friday, which would've been his birthday, Dumala said.
