The second gunman in the Mall of America shooting that killed 19-year-old Johntae Hudson has been sentenced for his role in the fatal shooting that took place just before Christmas in 2022.

Lavon Longstreet, 19, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and second-degree assault for the fatal shooting that occurred on Dec. 23, 2022, at Nordstrom at the Mall of America. Two groups were fighting just before 8 p.m. in the store where Hudson was later found with multiple gunshot wounds.
