DAYTON, Ohio (AP) — A man has pleaded guilty to a single count in a Veterans Affairs hospital shooting in Ohio that wounded an employee.
Former Veterans Affairs employee Neil Moore pleaded guilty Friday to assault with a dangerous weapon. Prosecutors dropped a second charge.
Moore made the plea after a federal judge in Dayton ruled that he was mentally competent to stand trial. His attorney had said earlier that he had a history of mental illness.
Moore faces a possible sentence of more than five years in prison. He is due in court Dec. 12.
