ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A man accused of fatally shooting an Albuquerque police officer last year has pleaded guilty to another federal firearms charge from eight months ago.

Prosecutors say 35-year-old Davon Lymon pleaded guilty Tuesday to violating the federal firearms laws by unlawfully possessing a firearm in May.

Under terms of the plea agreement, prosecutors will dismiss two counts of a superseding indictment after Lymon has been sentenced on the two other counts.

A federal judge returned a guilty verdict two months ago against Lymon for being a felon in possession of a firearm and ammunition in October 2015 when Lymon allegedly shot Officer Daniel Webster during a traffic stop.

Webster later died of his injuries. Lymon has been charged with murder in a separate state case.
