SALEM, OR (KPTV) - A man arrested in connection to a shooting death in Salem pleaded guilty to murder on Wednesday.

Jose Barboza-Manzo was taken into custody in November last year at a home in unincorporated Tillamook County. Police said Barboza-Manzo had multiple outstanding warrants and was also wanted in connection to the shooting death of 37-year-old Kenny Kalugin.

Kalugin was found unconscious in a vehicle in an alley near the 1800 block of Liberty Street Northeast; he was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy later determined he died of gunshot wounds.

Barboza-Manzo refused to exit his home when officers and deputies tried to arrest him, but surrendered when a SWAT time arrived on scene, according to authorities.

Law enforcement later arrested two other people in connection to Kalugin's death. 

Barboza-Manzo is due back in court for sentencing on Dec. 10.
