Duluth Man Gets 20 Years for Role in Hermantown Drive-By Shooting

DULUTH, Minn. – A Duluth man involved in a Hermantown drive-by shooting back in September has received a 20-year prison sentence this morning, according to St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin.

Last month, a St. Louis County jury found 47-year-old Robert John Lund guilty of four counts of aiding and abetting second-degree attempted murder, four counts of aiding and abetting a drive-by shooting, and one count of ineligible possession of a firearm.

Judge Sally Tarnowski sentenced Lund to 240 months in prison on aiding and abetting attempted murder convictions and 117 months for being a felon in possession. The sentences will be served simultaneously.

Denzel Perrin

Denzel Perrin, 21, of Superior pleaded guilty in January to three felony counts for his role in the drive-by

shooting. Perrin told police that both he and Lund fired shots from a vehicle into four people standing outside a residence on Oak Ridge Drive in Hermantown on Sept. 24. Trenton William Sampson, 20, of Superior was struck in the leg.

Three juveniles involved in the incident have also been adjudicated.
