MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Burnsville man has been sentenced for a shooting last March at a gas station in Burnsville.

Marcus Rollins was charged with second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and was sentenced to 36 months in prison, which was stayed.

He will have to spend 265 days in the Dakota County jail on a work-release program and will be on probation for 15 years.

Burnsville Police officers were dispatched to a Super America on County Road 42 and County Road 5 last March on the report of a vehicle accident that led to a shooting incident.

Authorities say a Dodge Durango had driven into a parked car at the gas station and the person whose car was hit, pulled out a gun and shot more than one round into the Durango.

A 15-year-old girl was slightly injured in the lower back.

No damage was done to the Super America or any of the gas pumps.
