LEAVENWORTH, Kan. — A 23-year-old Lansing man pleaded guilty on Monday for his alleged involvement in a shooting that injured two people last year.

Fountain plead to charges of attempted murder in the second-degree, aggravated battery, criminal discharge of a firearm at an occupied dwelling, and felon in possession of a firearm.
Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson says on Sept. 11, 2015 officers with the Leavenworth Police Department were dispatched to the 600 block of N. 5th Street in regards to shots fired.
