Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - A second Rochester man has pleaded guilty to being involved in the shooting that left the victim a quadriplegic.
28-year-old Abdirahman Abdullahi today entered into a plea agreement with Olmsted County prosecutors and admitted to a second-degree assault charge. Three other felony charges, including first and second-degree attempted murder, are being dropped.
