FARGO - An Iowa man officially changed his plea to guilty Friday for three charges stemming from the armed robbery of a Fargo hotel last summer, U.S. Attorney Christopher C. Myers announced.
Eric Lee Webb, 31, pleaded guilty to shooting at two Fargo police officers after robbing the downtown Howard Johnson Inn on June 4.
Webb's previous convictions of burglary and robbery, both in Iowa District Court, meant he was prohibited from carrying a gun or ammunition because he was a convicted felon. He also faced charges of interference with commerce by threats and violence and the use and carrying of a firearm during a crime of violence.
Judge Ralph Erickson set sentencing for April 21.
