CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A man has pleaded guilty in connection with a fatal shooting that occurred in November 2020 in Charlottesville.

According to a release, Bryan Garrick Hatcher pleaded to voluntary manslaughter and possession of a firearm by a felon on Friday.

On Nov. 14, 2020, police responded to a shots fired call on Orangedale Avenue where they found a man who had been shot and was dead.

The victim was later identified as 41-year-old Tiewan Levert Benston of Charlottesville.

The release says a witness who had called police saw a visibly intoxicated man leave the area, and their description was used to arrest Hatcher.

The witness then positively identified him as the suspect.

Hatcher told officers he had been riding in a vehicle with Benston when he couldn't find his wallet and accused Benston of stealing it.

The two men got into a fight and Hatcher shot Benston once.

Hatcher will be sentenced on Jan. 10. He faces up to 15 years in prison.
