Guilty plea in drive-by shooting


One of two men, who police say shot at a home on Sioux City's west side, has pleaded guilty to the charge he faced.

Court documents say prosecutors amended the charge that 24-year-old Patrick Craft faced to intimidation with a dangerous weapon.

On Wednesday, Craft pleaded guilty to that charge. No sentencing date has been set.

In late September, investigators say Melvin Spencer, 20, fired a 357 Magnum at a home located at 1612 West 17th Street.

Three people were outside the home and three others were inside, including two small children.

Court documents show after all the people were in the house, the vehicle Spencer was driving turned around and came back. That's when, police say Craft fired another shot at the home. Spencer will have his own plea hearing on Thursday.
