FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) — A Fort Wayne man has pleaded guilty to his role in the shooting of a 19-year-old.

Fort Wayne’s NBC previously reported that Trevon Giddens, 19, was critically injured after he was shot at Weisser Park in the 3200 block of South Hanna St. on March 4.

Police arrested Keshon Rogan, 20, in the shooting after Rogan turned himself in through Fort Wayne’s new TenPoint Coalition.

In court on Friday, Rogan pleaded guilty to aggravated battery. The plea deal calls for up to nine years in prison when he is sentenced on Dec. 5.

Court documents say Rogan shot at Giddens 11 times, hitting him several times in his back, and then allegedly stood over him and shot him in the torso during a drug deal.

Rogan was preliminarily charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery with a deadly weapon and criminal recklessness.
