Posted: Updated:

A Shamrock man has pleaded guilty to possessing two machine guns after being injured while mixing explosives in his trailer home last year.

Wheeler County deputies responded to an explosion, finding Scott Leavitt outside the trailer with a severe hand injury.

Deputies seized bomb-making materials, two fully automatic rifles, and 12 hand grenades from the property.

Leavitt also pleaded guilty to a charge of assault causing bodily injury in 1997.
