Nace admitted he handed rounds to Marquell Rentas and collected the spent casings as Rentas fired on the officers July 29, 2016.

The officers – from Columbia and East and West Hempfield townships – were not struck or injured.

Rentas was convicted at a September trial for attempted murder of a law enforcement officer, conspiracy, assault of a law enforcement officer, and reckless endangerment. His sentencing is pending.
