FARGO, N.D. (AP) - An Iowa man accused of robbing a North Dakota hotel at gunpoint has changed his plea to guilty.

Thirty-year-old Eric Webb, of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, was shot by a Fargo police officer shortly after the June 4, 2015, holdup at the Howard Johnson Inn. He spent time in a Fargo hospital before being jailed.

Webb faced five counts but reached a plea deal with prosecutors. U.S. Attorney Christopher Myers says Webb on Friday pleaded guilty to three counts, including a robbery-related charge and weapons counts. He’s to be sentenced April 21.
