CHRISTIANSBURG, Virginia — A man accused of shooting and wounding two women at a community college inside a Virginia mall has pleaded guilty to four felony charges.

Media outlets report that 19-year-old Neil Allan MacInnis of Christiansburg, Virginia, pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of aggravated malicious wounding and two counts of using a firearm in a felony. Sentencing is set for July 10 in Montgomery County Circuit Court.

Police have said the women were in the lobby when a gunman entered a satellite campus of New River Community College in the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg on April 12, 2013. The suspect was subdued by an off-duty security guard and Christiansburg police.

MacInnis has been held without bond at the Western Virginia Regional Jail.
