CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) — A 44-year-old Cedar Rapids man accused of trying to kill his neighbors is scheduled to be sentenced next month.
According to court records, Joseph Pham pleaded guilty to lesser charges Monday in a deal with prosecutors.
Pham had been charged with three counts of attempted murder and one count of intimidation with a dangerous weapon. Prosecutors said he shot Brian Wilson and fired at two others on June 9, 2012.
Pham pleaded guilty to felony intimidation and reckless use of a firearm.
Police said the shooting stemmed from a disagreement between Pham and Wilson. Police said there were several complaint calls made in 2012 by Wilson and Pham regarding loud music, rude gestures, broken windows and feces being thrown.
Pham’s sentencing is set for Feb. 18.
