Man pleads guilty over gun used to shoot at Ohio building


CINCINNATI (AP) — Federal prosecutors say a man accused of having a gun used to shoot at a Cincinnati building has pleaded guilty to a weapons charge.

Prosecutors say 23-year-old Rayshaun Herald, also known as Rayshawn, pleaded guilty Tuesday to possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

His attorney didn’t return calls seeking comment Wednesday.

Authorities say the Cincinnati man had a loaded 9mm weapon after being convicted on charges of cocaine trafficking and having weapons under disability.

Investigators say a gun that Herald had was linked to January 2015 shootings at the Great American Tower in Cincinnati through a national ballistics database. No one was hurt in the shootings, which happened after business hours on four nights.

Herald could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison.
