GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (AP) - A man who authorities say shot and wounded a hospital security guard during a confrontation in a Grand Rapids parking structure has pleaded no contest to attempted murder and other charges.

The Grand Rapids Press and WOOD-TV report 33-year-old Horace Demarco Collins faces at least 10½ to 23 years in prison when sentenced Nov. 24. He also faces two years for the use of a firearm during a felony. A no contest plea isn’t an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.

With the plea, Collins avoids a mandatory minimum sentence of 25 years.

Police say a Spectrum Hospital guard in June found Collins in the process of breaking into a vehicle that was parked in the ramp. The guard was treated at the hospital and released.
