MADISON, Neb. (AP) - A Madison man has made a plea deal with prosecutors who say he brandished a BB handgun at three students at Northeast Community College in Norfolk.

The Norfolk Daily News says (https://bit.ly/1pGm8vF ) 23-year-old John Ertzner pleaded no contest to making terroristic threats, a felony. Prosecutors will recommend a one-year sentence in return for Ertzner’s plea. His sentencing is scheduled for July 24.

Officials say Ertzner approached three students on March 7. They say he followed them on a campus road and stopped next to them when they stopped, pointing a gun at two of them.

Ertzner told an investigator he mistook the three for other men who’d chased him earlier in Norfolk. He said he’d put his BB pistol on his car console but didn’t point it at the students.
