MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A man involved in a drive-by shooting that left an innocent 12-year-old girl paralyzed will learn his punishment Friday.

Marlon Lozano-Montano, 18, pleaded guilty earlier this month to assault in the first degree for the benefit of a gang.

In November 2010, 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.

A bullet missed the group, but hit 13-year-old Guadalupe Hernandez, then 12 years old, while she was standing outside of a friend’s home on the 3400 block of Chicago Avenue South.

Guadalupe was hit in the neck and remains paralyzed.

Prosecutors said Lozano-Montano believed the people near Guadalupe were in a gang because they were wearing “baggy clothes.”

WCCO-TV has followed Guadalupe’s health since the shooting. Some stories with more information on her can he seen here.

Sentencing for Lozano-Montano will start at 1:30 p.m.
