WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) - A teenager has pleaded guilty to charges in connection with last September’s shooting death of a baseball prospect in suburban New York City.

Seventeen-year-old Nashaun Hunter, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty to manslaughter Wednesday in the death of Michael Nolan.

Westchester authorities say Nolan was standing outside his car when Hunter fired several shots, hitting Nolan once in the head.

The shooting outside a Burger King parking lot in Yonkers stemmed from a drag racing dispute.

The Oakland Athletics drafted Nolan, a Yonkers native, out of Oklahoma City University. He was placed on the restricted list in July 2014, and never pitched in an official Minor League game.

Two other suspects arrested in the shooting have pleaded guilty to assault. A fourth suspect has also been charged in the shooting.
