Mike Nolan dies after being shot in New York

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

A spokeswoman for the New York City medical examiner's office said Mike Nolan's death was reported to the office on Friday. The Journal News reports that Nolan was declared brain dead on Thursday.

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

He 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. Donna Nolan, the left-handed pitcher's mother, said the A's sent flowers to the family's home.

Nolan's father, Jimmy, said the family plans to donate Mike Nolan's organs.
