FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) - A man accused of attempting to kill another man by shooting an ambulance has admitted to the crime.

Traneilous Jackson, 24, of Fort Wayne, pleaded guilty to four counts of attempted murder in Allen County court on Monday, The Journal Gazette reports.

If accepted by the judge, the plea agreement calls for 60 years in prison, the report says.

In the early morning hours of Sept. 9, police say Jackson stabbed Jermaine Loyall, 29, of Fort Wayne, inside Piere's night club, 5629 St. Joe Rd.

As paramedics took Loyall to the hospital, police say Jackson and Dontay Martin, 23, of Fort Wayne, drove along side the ambulance and a vehicle of Loyall's family members following the ambulance and opened fire.

Seventeen bullet holes riddled the ambulance. An EMT was hit with with bullet fragments in the arm and side.

Authorities would eventually track down Jackson's and Martin's vehicle in downtown Fort Wayne. Two other men were inside the car, but have not been charged.

Martin, also charged with four counts of attempted murder, has a four-day trial starting Feb. 4.
