A Fort Wayne teenager accused of firing a gun at a bus stop in February pleaded guilty Tuesday.
Krystopher L. Acoff, 19, of the 900 block of Arbordale Place, was charged in April with felony possession of a firearm on school property/bus and criminal recklessness.
He admitted to both Tuesday morning in Allen Superior Court, telling a judge he put people in danger.
Acoff, then 18 and a high school student, was on a Fort Wayne Community Schools bus Feb. 25 when he pulled a gun from a backpack and put it back in the bag, police said.
Before getting off the bus, he took the gun from the backpack and put it in the front pocket of a hooded sweatshirt he was wearing, according to court documents.
He fired the weapon near Colerick and Reed streets, an area police described in a probable cause affidavit as “completely surrounded by homes.” Shell casings were found there, and no one was injured.
He was charged April 17 and arrested a few days later by the Fort Wayne Police Department Gang and Violent Crimes Unit.
In court, Acoff told Judge Fran Gull he had a gun that day and fired it. He agreed when she asked whether he believed he put people in danger.
A sentencing hearing is scheduled Oct. 2.
