DETROIT (AP) -- A man charged in a shooting that wounded the mayor of the Detroit enclave of Highland Park faces at least five to 10 years in prison when sentenced.

The Macomb Daily of Mount Clemens reports (http://bit.ly/MKGpB2 ) 25-year-old Jair Harris of Eastpointe pleaded guilty Friday in Detroit to three counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count each of carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Sentencing is scheduled March 14. Under an agreement with prosecutors, other charges will be dismissed.

DeAndre Windom was shot in the leg at Key Club near downtown Detroit shortly before 2 a.m. on Nov. 17. The mayor was treated at a hospital. Police have said a dispute unrelated to Windom escalated into the shooting.
