Teenage Elkhart shooting suspect pleads guilty


A teenage boy admitted to killing another teenager Thursday in Elkhart Circuit court.  This comes as part of a plea deal for 16-year-old Jesus Macedo.

The deal says Macedo will spend 65 years behind bars.  He had been charged with Murder and Criminal Gang Enhancement.  The gang charge was dropped as part of the deal.

The Elkhart County Prosecutors Office says Macedo admitted to gunning down Braxton Barhams in June.  The shooting happened on the 200 block of West Garfield.  Barhams died at the scene.
