A Yigo man accused of fatally shooting a teenage boy while hunting on Andersen Air Force Base has pleaded guilty to the charges under an agreement with the attorney general's office.

Although the terms of the plea agreement were not available yesterday, the AG's office spokeswoman, Jennifer Deak, confirmed yesterday that Franklin John Salas recently has signed the agreement. Salas is scheduled to be sentenced at 2 p.m. Dec. 6 before Superior Court of Guam Presiding Judge Alberto Lamorena.

Salas is accused of shooting two teen boys while they were illegally hunting on the base in Yigo on June 30 last year.

Shaundale P. Quenga, 14, died after he suffered a wound to the leg, while the other teenager was shot but survived. Salas told police he was pursuing a deer with several men and the victims, but when he then turned around to call off the search, his 12-gauge shotgun fired.

Salas was indicted on charges that included negligent homicide.
