OMAHA, Neb. — A 22-year-old man has taken a plea deal in the fatal shooting of an Omaha resident inside a parked car.

Court records say Benjamin Guevara is scheduled to be sentenced March 19. He pleaded guilty Tuesday to manslaughter and a weapons crime. Originally he was charged with first-degree murder for the death of 21-year-old Oziel Vasquez-Serrano.

The records say Guevara shot Vasquez-Serrano on May 13, pulled him from the car and left him to die.
