MANDAN, N.D. (AP) — A former Mandan High School student accused of bringing a loaded gun to school has changed his plea to guilty to two of four charges.

KXMB-TV (http://bit.ly/1tcvjmw ) reports 18-year-old Todd Miller has pleaded guilty to accomplice to reckless endangerment and carrying a concealed weapon. A judge dismissed the other two charges.

The school was put in lockdown in May when police received a tip that a student had brought a gun to school. Police said they found the gun on Miller.

The prosecutor on Monday in court said the old, rusty revolver wasn't loaded when it was seized.

Miller faces up to six years in prison.

A 16-year-old boy also was arrested in the incident. His case is being handled in juvenile court, where proceedings aren't open to the public.
