BATON ROUGE - An 18-year-old from Baker has admitted his involvement in a January 2012 shooting outside the Mall of Louisiana that injured two teenage bystanders.

Michael L. Burrell pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of accessory after the fact to attempted first-degree murder and was sentenced to two years in prison followed by five years of probation. He was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder.

Burrell's 18-year-old co-defendant, Johnny Williams, of Baton Rouge, pleaded guilty last month to two counts of attempted first-degree murder and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Prosecutors told state District Judge Trudy White that Burrell supplied the gun that Williams used to shoot into a crowd outside the mall on Jan. 7, 2012, striking two high school students.
