TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Two Topeka men pleaded guilty in separate federal firearms cases Monday.

Matthew Hoag, 22, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of a firearm after a felony conviction.

Hoag admitted he called officers in March on reports of shots fired.

They later found he had a handgun, which was prohibited because of a 2010 drug conviction.

Tyrone Lewis, 34, pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful possession of ammunition after a felony conviction.

He admitted he called officers because people were chasing him.

Officers say they found Lewis, possibly under the influence of narcotics, with four bullets in his possession.

Both Hoag and Lewis are scheduled for sentencing November 5th. Both face 10 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.
