CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) -- A Charlotte, North Carolina, man has pleaded guilty to firing a gun near a school in Charleston.

20-year-old Aric Adams entered a guilty plea Wednesday in Kanawha County Circuit Court to wanton endangerment and brandishing.

Adams had been indicted in federal court, but as part of his plea agreement, the federal case will be dropped.

Prosecutors say Adams fired eight times on March 25 shortly after students at J.E. Robins Elementary School were released at the end of the school day.

Adams faces up to six years in prison. Sentencing has been set for Aug. 22.
