SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — One of two people accused in a deadly Sioux Falls shooting has changed his plea to guilty.
Nineteen-year-old Robert Montes, of Sioux Falls, pleaded guilty Monday to one count of accessory to a felony in the fatal January shooting of Anthony Gabriel. In exchange for the plea, prosecutors have agreed to drop murder and manslaughter charges against Montes.
Lawyers and family for both sides declined to comment.
Montes and 17-year-old Conner Hanson are charged in Gabriel's death. Prosecutors say Hanson fired shots at Gabriel's car after a pursuit through Sioux Falls. Gabriel died from a gunshot wound to the head.
Hanson is charged with murder, manslaughter and discharging a firearm at an occupied motor vehicle. He has pleaded not guilty.
