A Kansas man was sentenced to life in prison Tuesday for fatally shooting an engineer from India after calling him a “terrorist” and yelling, “Get out of my country!” in a bar confrontation last year. The victim’s companion, also from India, and a bar patron who intervened were wounded.

Adam Purinton, 53, was sentenced to three consecutive life sentences without the possibility of parole after pleading guilty in May to three federal counts, including hate crime and firearm charges. (Get the full story at NBC News)
