Laquan Fallen, age 24, of Albany, pleaded guilty to manslaughter in Albany County Court on Tuesday, Aug. 8, for fatally shooting 24-year-old Czsar Lewis.

According to prosecutors, the two were in Albany near Central Avenue and Robin Street on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022, when Fallen shot Lewis with a handgun. He was legally prohibited from having the weapon at the time.

Prosecutors initially filed a murder charge against Fallen, who claimed the shooting was done in self-defense, WNYT reports.
