Jury finds Duluth man guilty in drive-by shooting

Forum News Service

A 47-year-old Duluth man was convicted Thursday of four counts of aiding and abetting second-degree attempted murder in the September drive-by shooting in Hermantown that injured one person.

Robert John Lund also was convicted in State District Court in Duluth of four counts of aiding and abetting drive-by shooting and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

A St. Louis County jury deliberated approximately four hours before returning the verdict Thursday.

Lund is scheduled to be sentenced on March 23.

In January, Denzel Sheldon Perrin, 20, of Superior, pleaded guilty to three felony counts of drive-by shooting in the same case. He was sentenced Monday to 7½ years in prison for his role in the crime.

Perrin admitted that he and Lund fired a handgun into a group of four people standing outside a residence on Sept. 24. Police said the incident was precipitated by a confrontation earlier that night and by an ongoing social media feud.
