Adam Purinton is charged with first-degree murder in the shooting death of Srinivas Kuchibhotla, 32, and two counts of attempted murder.
Public outcry, including that of Ian Grillot, the man who tried to stop the shooter, caused President Trump to finally address the incident being investigated as a hate crime.
