WEST CHESTER, Pa. (AP) - A suburban Philadelphia man has pleaded guilty in the shooting of a former professional Harrisburg soccer player outside a bar last summer in West Chester.

The Daily Local News (https://bit.ly/1pAnqWD) said 25-year-old Curtis Zebley of Kennett Square pleaded guilty Thursday in Chester County Court to felony aggravated assault and related counts. He will be sentenced in about two months.

Prosecutor Michael Noone said 35-year-old Jason Hotchkin has nerve damage to his right leg and walks with a limp.

Hotchkin retired from the Harrisburg City Islanders in 2012. He was in West Chester for a youth event at the time of the August shooting.

Moffat “Mo” Odour, another former City Islanders player, also suffered minor injuries.

Neither player was in court.

Defense attorney Peter Kratsa said his client has accepted responsibility.
