GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- A Durham man accused of shooting and wounding a North Carolina Highway Patrol trooper has pleaded guilty to a federal weapons charge.
 
Twenty-four-year-old Mikel Edward Brady II pleaded guilty Monday to possession of a gun by a felon. He faces up to 10 years in prison when he is sentenced in November.
 
Trooper Michael Potts was shot in the face, hands and shoulder during a traffic stop on U.S. 70 on Feb. 18. Potts is recovering from his injuries.
 
Police said Brady fired four shots.
 
Other charges in the shooting are pending.
