MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - Two men accused of robbing a Missoula convenience store, carjacking a family from Washington state and shooting at police during a pursuit are expected to plead guilty next week.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/2dUYajP ) that Thomas Earl Dempsey and Nick West have both signed agreements with federal prosecutors saying they will plead guilty.

Dempsey is scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 1. He has agreed to plead guilty to charges of conspiracy, carjacking, a single count of kidnapping, and using a firearm during a crime.

West is slated to plead guilty to the same charges on Nov. 3.

Dempsey and West are accused of robbing a Missoula casino on May 27. Authorities say they carjacked a family of five outside and forced them to lead police on a chase through the city.
