A Manhattan man involved in a shooting with police in early 2018 pleaded no contest to attempted voluntary manslaughter.
Mark Harrison, 38, entered the plea at a hearing Thursday at the Riley County District Courthouse.
Harrison had initially been charged with three counts of attempted capital murder and one count of criminal damage to property after firing a gun more than 30 times during a standoff with police on Jan. 5, 2018.
The attempted manslaughter charge, reduced from attempted capital murder, stems from when a bullet struck Riley County Police Sgt. Pat Tiede.
In February, a trial jury found Harrison guilty of criminal damage to property related to gunshot damage to an armored vehicle sheltering officers near the incident, and not guilty of two counts of attempted capital murder, stemming from two officers sitting within the vehicle. Jurors could not reach a consensus on the attempted capital murder charge involving Tiede.
A retrial on the charge was scheduled for August.
Harrison will be sentenced at 9 a.m. July 22 at the Riley County District Courthouse.
