The Pueblo County Sheriff’s Office recently announced on their Facebook page that Bryce Dillon Ming, a 25-year-old, has pled guilty in federal court to three charges, which includes attempted homicide of a police officer. The incident started when Ming and two others carjacked an elderly woman in Pueblo in June 2022.

All three defendants have since entered plea agreements.
After being found guilty, Montoya received a sentence of six years in the Department of Corrections. Meanwhile, Aguilar is currently awaiting sentencing.
