So sad…

One man has died after a shooting erupted in the parking lot outside a Yo Gotti concert late Friday night in Kansas City, Missouri, according to reports out this morning on TMZ.

The victim — still unidentified publicly by law enforcement — may have been part of a group of people that had gotten in a fight as part of a large crowd outside the concert venue at about 11:30 p.m. last night.

Witnesses on scene reported that a melee broke out between multiple people, and in the middle of it, someone fired a gun.

By the time police and paramedics reached the scene, all they could do was pronounce the victim deceased.

Other details still coming in are sketchy, but law enforcement notes the timing and proximity likely means those involved in the shooting were there for the concert.

Kansas Man Gets Life Sentence for Shooting Immigrant in Bar After Yelling ‘Get Out of My Country!’

(OLATHE, Kan.) — A Kansas man who opened fire last year in a suburban Kansas City bar, killing an immigrant from India in what federal prosecutors have called a hate crime, was sentenced Friday to life in prison.

Adam Purinton, 52, was sentenced for premeditated first-degree murder in the Feb. 22, 2017, death of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, a shooting that stirred fears that immigrants were facing more violence after President Donald Trump’s election. It also attracted international attention, especially in India, where officials publicly wondered if their citizens were safe in the U.S.

Witnesses said Purinton, who is white, uttered racial slurs at Kuchibhotla and his friend, Alok Madasani, both 32, as they enjoyed an after-work drink at Austin’s Bar and Grill in Olathe, Kansas. He was asked to leave but eventually returned and yelled “Get out of my country!” before firing at the men. A third man, Ian Grillot, was wounded when he tried to intervene.

Under terms of a plea agreement, District Judge Charles Droege sentenced Purinton to the maximum sentence on each of the three charges, and ordered them to run consecutively. Purinton was given two sentences of about 14 years for wounding the two men and wouldn’t be eligible for parole for 77.5 years, The Kansas City Star reported.

Kuchibhotla and Madasani immigrated to the U.S. as students and were working as engineers at GPS-maker Garmin at the time of the shooting. Madasani told detectives that the gunman asked the men if their “status was legal” before he opened fire, according to a court affidavit.

Purinton still faces federal hate crime charges for the shooting and is scheduled for a change of plea hearing May 21.

None of the victims or their family members attended Friday’s sentencing.

But Kuchibhotla’s widow, Sunayana Dumala, said in a statement directed to Purinton that she wished he could have seen beyond her husband’s skin color to “the beautiful and kindhearted person underneath it.”

She said the couple was looking forward to raising a family in the dream home they had found in Kansas.

“We were supposed to be together for lifetime but now the thought of having to live life alone and the hardships that come with it is unbearable,” she wrote.

Dumala said her husband was working on several large contracts at Garmin when he was killed and those contracts will provide jobs to many people. “Imagine how much more he could have achieved and contributed to the community if not for your anger and hatred.”

“I hope in the years that you must spend in the jail you will one day realize the magnitude of your mistake and work toward your penance,” she said.

After the shooting, Purinton drove 70 miles (110 kilometers) to Clinton, Missouri, where he confessed the shooting to a bartender at a restaurant.

In a written statement filed when he pleaded guilty in March, Purinton said he accepted full responsibility for the “grievous harm” he caused the victims, their families and the community.

“I hope that this plea might, in some small way, help reduce the suffering that I have caused them all,” he said in his statement.

Purinton, a Navy veteran, was a regular customer at Austin’s. Neighbors in the Olathe neighborhood where he lived told The Associated Press that he became “a drunken mess” following his father’s death about two years before the shooting and had physically and mentally deteriorated.

Sandy Hook Parents File Defamation Lawsuit Against Conspiracy Theorist Alex Jones Over Calling The 2012 Shooting A Hoax!

The parents of two children killed in the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre have had enough of Alex Jones accusing them of being “crisis actors.”

Two defamation lawsuits were filed on Monday against the InfoWars host, accusing Jones, a popular conspiracy theorist who has claimed the 2012 shooting was a hoax, of peddling lies that have resulted in death threats.

The lawsuits — filed by Neil Heslin (above, right), the father of a 6-year-old boy killed in the shooting, and Leonard Pozner and Veronique De La Rosa, whose child Noah was also killed — are seeking more than $ 1 million in damages from Jones, InfoWars, and Free Speech Systems LLC.

Mark Bankston, the lawyer handling the cases for the parents, told HuffPost:

“Even after these folks had to experience this trauma, for the next five years they were tormented by Alex Jones with vicious lies about them. And these lies were meant to convince his audience that the Sandy Hook parents are frauds and have perpetrated a sinister lie on the American people.”

There are at least two other cases that accuse Jones of defamation.

Over the past few years, Jones has regularly perpetuated the conspiracy theory that the Sandy Hook shooting, which left more than 20 people dead, was staged by the government. Like other conspiracy theorists, he has claimed that the parents of the child victims were merely crisis actors hired to sell the story.

He claimed in November 2016:

“The only problem is, I’ve watched a lot of soap operas, and I’ve seen actors before. And I know when I’m watching a movie and when I’m watching something real.”

Bankston, however, insists the parents are nothing but “genuine.” He told the publication:

“Anyone, parents or not, who spends 15 minutes talking to one of these parents will understand immediately how vile this lie was, and how genuine their pain is.”

Most recently, the InfoWars host has set his sights on Parkland shooting survivor David Hogg, whom he has also accused of being a “crisis actor.”

Um… okay Jones.
