Man reaches plea deal in shootout with agentsSeptember 26, 2019
By The Associated Press
HAMMOND — An Illinois man is expected to plead guilty in an Indiana shootout that killed one of his associates and wounded a federal agent.
Court records show 26-year-old Bernard Graham of Calumet City has acknowledged firing a gun during a June 2018 robbery of two undercover U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents who were investigating illicit gun purchases in Gary.
The (Northwest Indiana) Times reports that Graham's plea agreement calls for him to plead guilty to armed assault and discharge of a firearm.
An ATF agent was wounded and one of Graham's partners died.
A guilty plea would allow him to avoid a jury trial and possible life sentence. A change-of-plea hearing is tentatively scheduled for Monday.
Another suspect pleaded guilty last month in the shootout.
