Hennepin County District Court Judge Regina M. Chu sentenced Anthony Lamont Foote to 106 months in prison for a shooting that occurred last summer at a bus stop in North Minneapolis, Hennepin County Attorney Mike Freeman announced Thursday.

Foote, 24, of St. Paul, pleaded guilty to attempted murder in the second degree. He also pleaded guilty to second-degree assault and was sentenced to an additional 36 months in prison. The two sentences are to be served concurrently.

According to the criminal complaint, Minneapolis police were dispatched to a bus stop in the area of Dowling Ave. & Fremont Ave N. on August 11, 2016 in response to a shooting. A victim was found lying on the street with a serious injury to his face. Witnesses saw two males involved in the shooting running from the scene and fleeing in a car. Officers later identified the two men as Foote and Anthony Revon Clay, 26, of Robbinsdale.

Clay recently pleaded guilty to aiding an offender and will be sentenced on May 4. He is expected to receive 72 months in prison.
