The second man accused of being involved in a robbery and shooting at a Duluth business in December has entered a guilty plea.

Thirty-year-old Brandon Tyson, of Duluth, pleaded guilty to one count of Attempted Murder in the Second Degree in a hearing Monday, according to online court records. Thirty-two-year-old Robert Neft, of Saginaw, pleaded guilty to the same charge on Friday.

According to Business Owner Colin Mackin, the men allegedly walked into the ILF Smartphone Clinic on London Road and told him to get on the ground. Mackin told Eyewitness News that after a struggle, he followed them outside where one of the men shot him in the chest.

In the criminal complaint, Neft told police Tyson was the one to pull the trigger.

Tyson and Neft are scheduled to be sentenced in April.
