A TEENAGER accused of murdering a man outside a nightclub has dramatically admitted: "I killed him."
Darren Foley, 18, from Dalton, changed his not guilty plea at Leeds Crown Court yesterday.
In a dramatic twist Foley confessed to shooting 23-year-old Michael Hanley in the stomach outside Sheridan's Bar in Ravensthorpe, early on December 27, 2005.
Mr Hanley, from Harehills, east Leeds, died at the scene shortly after.
Foley stood calmly in the courtroom as he spoke only to enter his murder guilty plea.
Judge Peter Fox said he would be remanded in custody and sentenced at the end of the trial.
Foley had been on trial with co-defendants Jamie Hislop, 22, from Sheepridge, and Shane Thomas, 23, of Longroyd Bridge. They deny murder.
Another man, Igor Simic, 20, of Berry Brow, denies perverting the course of justice.
The shooting followed a scuffle after Mr Hanley bumped into a man inside the club.
The court also heard from witness Kimberley Henry.
Miss Henry, who witnessed a scuffle in Sheridan's Bar on the night of the murder, said police had pressured her into giving evidence against Foley and Hislop.
In two statements to the police under a pseudonym, Miss Henry said she saw Hislop remove a silver, 'gun-shaped' object from the waistband of his trousers and hand it to Foley.
But in court Miss Henry said this was what the police had told her to say.
Under cross-examination from prosecuting barrister Andrew Campbell, Miss Henry admitted she had seen an exchange between the two defendants.
She said: "I saw something.
"I didn't know what it was or what colour it was."
The trial continues.
