A Buffalo teen could spend the rest of his life in prison after admitting to murder.

According to the District Attorney's Office, 16-year-old Alonte Works pleaded guilty to second degree murder over the shooting death of Jonathan Jones. Jones, 31, was killed last October in the parking lot of the 50/50 Convenience Store on Fillmore Avenue.

Works, who will be sentenced as a juvenile, faces 10 years to life when he's sentenced in August.
