A man who was shot by U.S. Capitol Police officers after approaching them with a gun has pleaded guilty in the case.
Wheeler acknowledged in court that he ran toward an officer sitting in a police car near the U.S. Capitol in the early hours of Sept. 17, pointing a gun in the car's direction. After the officer sped away, Wheeler approached two other officers in the area and was shot.
Wheeler told a judge he is taking medication for depression and schizophrenia. He pleaded guilty to assaulting, resisting or impeding the officers.
Wheeler will be sentenced on May 19.
