Pitching Prospect Dies 3 Weeks After NY Shooting

A 23-year-old baseball prospect who was shot last month in a fast-food parking lot in New York has died.

The Journal News reports that Mike Nolan was declared brain dead on Thursday.

Nolan was shot Sept. 18 in the parking lot of a Burger King restaurant in Yonkers. Police have made no arrests.

Nolan had been hospitalized in New York City since the shooting.

Nolan was drafted by the Oakland A's in the 18th round of the 2014 Major League Baseball draft.

The left-handed pitcher's mother, Donna Nolan, said the A's sent flowers to the Nolans' home. She said the team sent a message that "he'll always be part of the Oakland A's family.''

Nolan's father, Jimmy Nolan, said the young man's family planned to donate his organs.
