RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) – Nicholas Brice pleaded no contest this week to second degree murder in the death of 19 year old Reginale Lee.

Police say Brice shot Lee six times, but fired as many as 12 shots.

Prosecutors say they offered a plea deal because of concerns about witness safety.

A co-defendant in the case, Carl Bruce will be in court September 10.
