A Fort Wayne man accused of trying to kill a 19-year-old man near a park on the city's south side has pleaded guilty.

Keshon Rogan, 20, had been charged with attempted murder, aggravated battery and criminal recklessness in the March 4 shooting of Trevon Giddens, 19, near the Weisser Park Recreation Center basketball courts. He pleaded guilty this morning to the aggravated battery charge.

A plea agreement calls for him to spend up to nine years in prison. A sentencing hearing is scheduled Dec. 5.

Rogan, who was 19 at the time, told police he shot at Giddens after an argument over a marijuana deal that took place on Weisser Park Avenue and Eckart Street. Rogan was attacked by Giddens, he told police, according to court documents.
