HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - A man who was shot by the Grand County sheriff last year has pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree assault.

District Attorney Brett Barkey says Connor MacLaird pleaded guilty Tuesday under a plea deal that calls for him to service between five and 12 years in prison.

Sheriff Brett Schroetlin shot MacLaird after a robbery was reported at a liquor store in Tabernash in September. At the time, investigators say he rushed at sheriff with a knife. A grand jury found the shooting was justified and decided there was enough evidence to charge MacLaird with several crimes.

He will be sentenced Aug. 15.
