WATERLOO (KWWL) -- A felon who pointed a handgun at two Waterloo women pled guilty to a gun crime Wednesday in federal court in Cedar Rapids.

Andre Ross, 44, from Waterloo, was convicted of one count of being a felon in possession of a handgun.

Information filed with the court showed Ross was convicted of second degree burglary in Black Hawk County on September 10, 1992. On January 11, 2010, in Waterloo, Ross threatened his girlfriend and another woman with a loaded handgun.

When Waterloo police officers arrived, Ross admitted he had the gun in one coat sleeve and a box of ammunition in the other. The loaded .22 caliber revolver and ammunition for the gun were recovered from the coat he was wearing.

Ross remains in custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing. Ross faces a possible maximum sentence of 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a $100 special assessment, and 3 years of supervised release following any imprisonment.
