A 19-year-old man pleaded guilty Monday to one count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, according to court records.

Damian M. Barber was accused of shooting another 19-year-old man in Kuna with a .22 rifle at least three times after an argument on Sept. 15. The two men had argued over text message; Barber then shot the victim at a home in the 3300 block of East Deer Flat Road. The victim was sent to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Barber is scheduled for sentencing on Feb. 27, according to court records.
