PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey man has pleaded guilty to the shooting death of a 12-year-old that led to an outcry for an end to violence in Paterson.

The Record reports (https://njersy.co/2pok55C) 21-year-old Jhymiere Moore, of Paterson, on Thursday pleaded guilty to charges of aggravated manslaughter in the 2014 death of Genesis Rincon.

She died hours after being shot.

Moore also pleaded guilty in the 2013 shooting death of 16-year-old Ragee Clark.

A mistrial was declared in his 2016 trial.
