SELLERSBURG, Ind. (WHAS11) -- A man involved in a 10-hour standoff with police in Sellersburg, Indiana has now pleaded guilty.

Joshua Priddy entered a guilty plea to killing a law enforcement animal, burglary and pointing a firearm on Thursday.

In the plea, Priddy admitted to the crimes, but said he was mentally ill.

The standoff occurred last summer in a home on the East Delaware Court.

Priddy killed a police dog and fired multiple shots at officers while he was barricaded inside the home.

He is set to be sentenced next month.
