ST. CLOUD -- A St. Cloud man has pleaded guilty to a downtown St. Cloud shooting last June that injured a teenager.

Twenty-one-year-old Kevon Washington pleaded guilty to 2nd-degree assault with a dangerous weapon - causing substantial bodily harm. A mental competency evaluation determined he was competent to face the charges and changed his plea to guilty on May 11th.

A St. Cloud police officer was patrolling the downtown area just before 1:00 a.m. on June 20th when the officer saw multiple fights in the H-Lot parking lot. That's when the officer saw a man raise his arm and fire gunshots toward the Centre Square Parking Ramp.

Court records show police investigators used video surveillance in the area to determine Washington was the shooter.
