ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A suspect has pleaded guilty in connection with a fatal drive-by shooting that killed an Albuquerque teenager last year.

The Albuquerque Journal (https://bit.ly/29vvFr4) reported Tuesday that Nicholas Gonzales pleaded guilty to shooting at an occupied dwelling, resulting in great bodily harm, and conspiracy.

Last month, a New Mexico district attorney dropped charges against two other suspects in the June 2015 shooting of 17-year-old Jaydon Chavez-Silver.

Donovan Maez and Christopher Cruz had faced multiple charges in the case, including first-degree murder.

The Journal says charges were dropped due to insufficient evidence.

Chavez-Silver was killed while at an Albuquerque house party.

Police say shots were fired from a vehicle into the home. They didn’t believe Chavez-Silver was the intended target of the attack.
