A man who said he was on a jihad to avenge U.S. policy in the Middle East pleaded guilty on Tuesday to killing a college student in New Jersey and admitted he fatally shot three men in the Seattle area in spring 2014.  

The Asbury Park Press reports that Ali Muhammad Brown entered a guilty plea Friday to first-degree robbery and a weapons charge in the June 2014 robbery in Point Pleasant Beach.
