MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A California man has pleaded guilty to a murder conspiracy charge in a July 2013 shooting in Minot that authorities said involved members of a California gang.

James Robinson agreed to plead guilty Tuesday in exchange for a nine-year prison sentence. KXMC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1IEI7t3 ) that prosecutors dropped an attempted murder charge as part of the deal.

Robinson and three other men were accused of traveling to Minot from Dickinson with plans to kill another man. Two of the other suspects are scheduled to be in court next week on conspiracy charges. The fourth pleaded guilty to a lesser charge.

Investigators say the man who was shot was apparently not the intended target because the suspects had received an incorrect address. Christopher Docher was shot twice in the neck but survived.
