The second of three men accused of shooting and killing Bubacarr Camara inside his father's Amsterdam Avenue store in June has pleaded guilty.

Michael Adams, 30, faces a maximum term of life in prison and a mandatory minimum of 10 years when he is sentenced, the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District said.

Adams, of the Bronx, pleaded guilty Thursday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Frank Maas to robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery, and to possessing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence resulting in death.

His brother, Stephen Adams, pleaded guilty to the same charges last month. A third man, Zubearu Bettis, is still facing charges.

Camara, 26, a recent arrival from Gambia, was killed about noon on June 18 during what a police source called a “botched robbery” of his father's shop, BNC General Merchandise, on a mostly residential stretch of Amsterdam Avenue between 104th and 105th Streets.

Adams was arrested on July 9. Stephen Adams and Bettis were arrested on June 26. All three were charged with Camara's killing following a federal grand jury indictment.
