PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A suspect has pleaded guilty to murder in a fatal shooting at a Portland recording studio in 2015.

Gang Deng Majok was sentenced on Friday to 30 years in prison, after changing his plea.

The charges stem from the shooting death of 19-year-old Treyjon Arsenault in May 2015. Police say Arsenault, a Westbrook High School graduate, and another man were shot at Da Block Studios.

A second suspect, Johnny Ouch of Westbrook, Maine, had pleaded guilty to elevated aggravated assault.

The Portland Press Herald reports (https://bit.ly/2lHPM6j ) that Arsenault was not involved in the conflict that led to the shooting and did not know the people involved.

Majok, a Sudanese national, will be subject to deportation after completing his sentence.
