(Reuters) - One of three Florida siblings accused of shooting at police following a cross-country crime spree pleaded guilty in a Colorado court on Thursday to reduced charges, court documents show.

Lee Grace Dougherty, 29, who was initially charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to two counts of felony menacing and attempted first-degree assault, according to a plea agreement filed in Huerfano County District Court.

Prosecutors dropped the attempted murder charge against her last week. In exchange for the guilty pleas, more than 20 charges related to the police chase and shootout were dismissed.
