(KSTP) – An Owatonna man charged with second-degree murder after another man’s death outside a shopping mall has been sentenced to 261 months, or over 21 years, in prison.

Mubarak Musse, 28, had previously entered a guilty plea after being charged with second-degree murder.

According to a criminal complaint filed at the time, on March 15 at 3:17 p.m., police responded to the Village Market building in Minneapolis on a report of a shooting.

When they arrived, officers found a man on the ground with 15 discharged cartridge casings near him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Musse has received credit for 38 days served.
