CASPER, Wyo. (AP) - A Wyoming man has entered a guilty plea to one charge related to a shooting at a hospital.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports that 20-year-old Mitchell D. Taylor pleaded guilty Thursday to destroying property at Wyoming Medical Center March 4.

Taylor’s attorney says he entered the plea because he is guilty of property destruction at the Casper hospital and wants to be held accountable.

Authorities say Taylor pointed a gun at two employees and fired seven times, missing both workers but damaging facility property.

The bullet damage to a door and wall was valued at more than $6,000.



Mitchell’s trial on two counts of aggravated assault is scheduled to begin Monday.

Taylor has pleaded not guilty and says he was high on LSD and suicidal at the time.
