Glover was also charged and sentenced for another robbery a week later, on June 23, 2020, at a St. Paul liquor store. In that incident, court filings say he threatened people with a gun, assaulted an employee and stole cash from the register.

Glover pleaded guilty to two charges. Davison pleaded guilty to one charge and was sentenced in May to six years in prison and three years of supervised release.

Tran recovered and reopened Penn Lake Roast Beef a few months after being shot.
