Moorhead man pleads guilty in home invasion shooting case

Emmanual Xavier Kennedy

MOORHEAD – A man charged with attempted murder after his involvement in a home invasion that led to a high-speed chase has pleaded guilty in the case.

Emmanual Xavier Kennedy, 23, of Moorhead pleaded guilty Monday in Clay County District Court to one count of possession of a weapon by a person with a criminal history and second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon, both felonies.

The attempted murder case against him was dismissed.

Kennedy was charged with three other men in August. Court documents say they showed up at a Moorhead home with guns and wearing gloves and masks, asking the residents for cash.

One man told the police he was shot at, and another man was hit in the head with the butt of a shotgun.

Kennedy’s sentencing is set for Jan. 21.
