SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A young man pleaded guilty to two charges related to a handgun used by the Trolley Square killer.

Prosecutors say Mackenize Hunter pleaded guilty to possessing a firearm while a drug user and transferring the gun to a minor. The maximum punishment is 10 years in prison.

The gun was sold to Sulejman Talovic when he was 17, months before the Bosnian immigrant killed five people and injured four others at Trolley Square mall in Salt Lake City. Talovic died in a shootout with police.

Brenden Brown pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor last week. He was also involved in the $800 sale. Charges are pending against two other people. No one is accused of knowing about Talovic's plans.
