MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two men involved in a 2013 home invasion in Hickory Hill pleaded guilty to their involvement, according to Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich.

The robbery happened in July 2013 in the 6100 block of Ridgewyck. Police said three men entered the victims’ apartment. One man acted as the lookout.

Officers said the men took $600 from one of the victims and took $800 and a pistol from a safe in the closet. The suspects also stole cell phones and left in a black Ford Expedition.

According to the police report, one of the victims got in his car and followed the Ford until one of the suspects began shooting at him. The victim was not hurt.

Investigators said Charles McClelland, 45, pleaded guilty to attempted first-degree murder and aggravated robbery. Officers said McClelland admitted to firing shots at the victim. McClelland was sentenced to 17 years on the attempted murder charge and 15 years on the robbery. He will have to serve at least 15 years before parole eligibility.

Police said Rufus Ross, 58, also pleaded guilty to aggravated robbery. He was sentenced to eight years in prison.

Two other defendants, Robert Gathright, 21, and Reginald Ross, 23, pleaded guilty earlier in 2016 to aggravated robbery and were both sentenced to eight years in prison.
