DODGE CITY, Kan. (AP) -- A 22-year-old southwest Kansas man is facing up to 10 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to participating in an attack at the home of a rival gang member.

Juan Torres pleaded guilty Monday to one count of aiding and abetting attempted murder in a Dodge City attack nearly five years ago. Prosecutors say Torres was a member of Diablos Viejos and was associated with the Norteno street gang during the Oct. 4, 2008, shooting at a Sureno gang member's home.

A co-defendant is accused of firing multiple rounds from an AK-47 style weapon and wounding the home's residents.

Torres is the 12th of 23 Dodge City gang members indicted in May 2011 on racketeering charges to plead guilty in the case. He is to be sentenced Sept. 16.
