LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ A 22-year-old has pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and a gun charge for shooting up a Lincoln home last November, killing a Plattsmouth man and leaving a Bellevue man injured.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Brandon Benson said in Lancaster County Court on Wednesday that he intended to scare the people inside the home.

Authorities say Benson fatally shot 19-year-old Richard “Ricky” Randall Jr. in connection with a drug deal Nov. 29, 2015. Eighteen-year-old Angok Wal was wounded.

Benson’s sentencing is scheduled for Nov. 30. He faces a minimum of 25 years in prison and a maximum of life in prison.

Two other men entered guilty pleas Wednesday in the incident.

Twenty-one-year-old Joseph L. Bratt pleaded no contest to attempted robbery.

Twenty-two-year-old Joshua Lock pleaded no contest to being an accessory for providing the long gun used.
