Tucson woman admits her role in a fatal shooting

TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A Tucson woman indicted in a fatal shooting outside a restaurant has pleaded guilty to attempting to hinder prosecution.

Pima County prosecutors say 20-year-old Priscilla Carolina Rodriguez entered her plea Monday.

Rodriguez could be placed on probation or receive a prison sentence of up to two years when she's sentenced April 10.

Authorities say 29-year-old Jose Carlos Gonzales was shot after a fight with another man in a parking lot last Sept. 26.

A man was arrested in October after gang detectives identified him as the shooter.

Rodriguez and three other people were indicted on first-degree murder charges.

The Arizona Daily Star says Rodriguez also was charged with possessing oxycodone for sale, possession of drug paraphernalia and hindering prosecution. Those charges were dismissed as a result of her plea.
