FARGO, North Dakota — One of five men charged in the robbery of a Fargo restaurant that left one employee injured from a gunshot wound says he will plead guilty.

Calvin Brown is charged in federal court with three counts, including discharging a firearm in a violent crime, a charge that carries a mandatory 10-year prison sentence.

Authorities say Calvin Brown drove the getaway car during the September robbery at Taco John's. Another suspect allegedly shot an employee in the leg when the worker did not immediately hand over money.

The robbery came during a rash of armed holdups in the Fargo area and was recently moved to federal court. The Hobbs Act allows for federal prosecution if the crime involves interstate commerce.

Brown's attorney, Charles Sheeley, declined to comment.
