KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – A man who police say was high on drugs when he shot at people in Kansas City last summer has pleaded guilty to killing a Chinese missionary.

The Kansas City Star reports 19-year-old Curtrail Hudson pleaded guilty Monday to second-degree murder and seven other charges in the August 2018 death of 38-year-old Xindong Hao.

Prosecutors say Hao was out walking in a neighborhood when Hudson, who was high on PCP, approached him and shot him. He also shot two other people, who survived.

Hao had arrived in Kansas City the day before he was shot after enrolling his four children in a day camp at the International House of Prayer.

Hudson told police he thought Hao knew another man Hudson had argued with moments before. That man was one of the other shooting victims.
