SAGINAW, Mich. – A 16-year-old has pleaded guilty in the 2007 shootings of four people near a middle school football game in Saginaw, Mich.

The Saginaw News reports Anthony Green Jr. pleaded guilty Wednesday to four counts of assault with intent to murder and three weapons charges.

Judge Fred Borchard will sentence Green on March 11. He is expected to receive at least 12 years in prison.

Green admitted shooting two teens and a married couple with a .22-caliber rifle outside South Middle School. He previously had been arguing with some classmates.

Defense attorney James Piazza says he's pleased with the plea deal and expects a reasonable sentence for Green.
