LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)

A 21-year-old man has been given 10 to 15 years in prison for his role in an attempted robbery that led to a fatal shooting in Lincoln.

Online court records say Joseph Bratt had pleaded no contest to attempted robbery in exchange for prosecutors dropping a weapons charge. Bratt was sentenced Tuesday.

Authorities say Bratt, Brandon Benson and Joshua Lock were charged after the November 2015 robbery attempt of people trying to buy marijuana. Authorities say Benson later went back to the house where the robbery attempt failed and fired several handgun rounds, killing 19-year-old Richard Randall Jr., of Plattsmouth, and wounding 18-year-old Angok Wal, of Bellevue.        

Benson is scheduled to be sentenced next week. Lock is set to be sentenced on Dec. 16.
