HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Prosecutors have offered a plea deal to an 18-year-old man charged with fatally shooting a 15-year-old boy.

The Hartford Courant (https://cour.at/2y7Z2Lf ) reports that in a brief court appearance on Tuesday, prosecutor John Fahey told a Hartford Superior Court judge that the state has extended an offer to Tywone Edwards Jr. Details were not disclosed.

Deron Freeman, Edwards’ lawyer, said he will discuss it with his client.

Edwards is charged with the March 17 shooting of Keon Huff Jr., who was shot in the head.

Edwards, who was 17 at the time, was originally charged with murder, but that was reduced to manslaughter. Edwards’ attorney says the teens were playing with a gun went it went off and the shooting was an accident.

The case was continued until Nov. 6.
