BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Sentencing is scheduled for a man convicted of firing a shotgun at a residence during a drive-by shooting on the Fort Berthold Indian Reservation.
Michael Mitzel pleaded guilty to three counts, including reckless endangerment and terrorizing.
Authorities say Mitzel tried to cover up the August 2014 shooting by hiding the gun and selling the vehicle.
The plea agreement says Mitzel knew the occupants of the house, but did not know if they were there at the time of the shooting.
Sentencing is scheduled Monday morning in Bismarck. Mitzel faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
