SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A man who supplied a Bosnian teenager with the handgun used in a February mall shooting has pleaded guilty to felony and misdemeanor drug charges.

Brenden Taylor Brown on Tuesday pleaded guilty to selling OxyContin, possession of morphine and possession of marijuana in 3rd District Court.

He will face penalties of more than two years in jail when he is sentenced in January.

Charging documents state deputies found drugs in Brown's apartment in January.

Brown is one of three men who pleaded guilty to federal charges in connection with the February shooting at Trolley Square Mall. Brown provided Sulejman Talovic with the handgun the 18-year-old used in the massacre that left five dead and four wounded.

Brown was sentenced to probation for selling a gun to a minor.
