FREEHOLD, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty in the 2013 shooting death of another man.

Monmouth County prosecutors say 21-year-old Dante Strong pleaded guilty to aggravated manslaughter on Thursday under a deal with prosecutors in the death of 23-year-old Adrian Anderson in Long Branch.

Strong told the judge he was part of a group that was involved in some confrontations with other groups. He says his relative was hurt during a confrontation, leading him to shoot into a crowd. One of the shots hit Anderson.

Police found Anderson unconscious with several gunshot wounds. He died at a hospital.

Prosecutors will recommend Strong be sentenced to 15 years in prison.

He could become eligible for parole after serving nearly 13 years. His sentencing is scheduled for October.
