Two men pleaded guilty Wednesday to their roles in the killing of 24-year-old Ismail Walker at a 10th Avenue auto repair shop almost three years ago, according to the Passaic County Prosecutor’s Office.

Walker was later pronounced dead as a result of the gunshot wounds.

Authorities said after the shooting Adams and Morrison were caught on surveillance camera with the .38 caliber gun when both returned to Adam’s home on 200 Godwin Avenue.

Adams faces 16 years in state prison. He must serve 85-percent of the entire term before being eligible for parole. Upon release, he will be subjected to 5 years of parole supervision, authorities said.

Morrison faces 12 years in state prison. He must serve 6 years before being eligible for parole as a persistent offender.

Sentencing for Adams and Morrison is scheduled for March 10, 2017.
