PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A man has pleaded guilty to his role in the 2016 shooting on the Umatilla Indian Reservation that left one man dead and another injured.

The East Oregonian reports (https://bit.ly/2tyheZF ) Victor Joseph Contreras made a deal with the United States Attorney’s Office in federal court, admitting his guilt to two counts of possession of a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence and assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Court documents show that in exchange for the plea deal, prosecutors promised a prison sentence “no greater than the low-end of his sentencing guideline range” plus five years of post-prison supervision.

The gun crime carries a maximum prison sentence of 10 years. The assault carries a minimum sentence of 10 years consecutive.
