Officials said the teenager, accused in the 2012 Bricktown shooting, accepted a plea deal.

Avery Myers, who was 16 at the time of the incident, was accused of opening fire on a crowd of fans after the final game of round two against the Lakers.

Meyers was originally charged with eight counts of shooting with intent to kill. However, court records indicate he entered a plea of guilty to the alternative charge of assault and battery with a deadly weapon on each count.
