MINNEAPOLIS - A 20-year-old man pleaded guilty to a charge of second-degree murder in connection to a shooting in Minneapolis in June, according to the Hennepin County Attorney's Office.
Bryant Deshawn Elliott, 20, of Minneapolis pleaded guilty to the charge on Monday.
According to the criminal complaint, Elliott and a friend approached three men walking on 26th Avenue North between Emerson and Dupont Avenues on June 12. Elliot asked them if they had any marijuana and as they were talking, Elliott pulled a gun and pointed it at another man's head, the complaint said. Bolden unsuccessfully tried to knock the gun away and Elliott shot him, killing him almost instantly, authorities said.
Sentencing was set for Feb. 6. Elliot faces more than 27 years in prison.
