A 29-year-old man has pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder charges in the 2008 shootings of two Baton Rouge police officers who confronted him after a high-speed car chase.

Christopher Joseph Johnson of Baton Rouge also pleaded guilty Monday to a charge of felon in possession of a firearm.

The Advocate reports state District Judge Tony Marabella is scheduled to sentence Johnson in January.

East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorney Hillar Moore said the officers, Myron Daniels and Brannon Ogden, continue to work for the police department.

Daniels was shot in the abdomen during the shootout June 20, 2008, and was in a coma for five days.

Ogden was treated and released that night for a gunshot wound to the arm.
