BUTTE — A man pleaded guilty Thursday in Butte District Court to three felony charges in connection with entering an uptown business with a gun and threatening to shoot people in December of 2018.

The brief standoff ended when Travis Ian Hunter shot out a window and leaped from the second-story window seriously injuring himself. He pleaded to kidnapping, assault with a weapon and criminal endangerment.

The judge will sentence him at a later date and Hunter is free on bond.
