MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) –- One of the teens involved in a drive-by shooting that left an innocent 12-year-old girl paralyzed in November pleaded guilty Friday and will serve 155 months in prison.
Marlon Lozano-Montano, 18, pleaded guilty to assault in the first degree for the benefit of a gang.
At the time of the shooting, Lozano-Montano, who was then 17, was in a car containing three gang members, one of which shot at a group of people as the car drove by.

Hernandez remains paralyzed.
