A Duluth man has entered a guilty plea in a case where he is accused of fatally shooting another man in November.

According to the Beltrami County Attorney's Office, Montana Oshki-Ayaabe Cutbank has pleaded guilty to a second-degree intentional murder charge. During his plea hearing, Cutbank admitted to being the backseat passenger in a motor vehicle that stopped at a Beltrami County residence near Cass Lake on the evening of Nov. 24. 

Cutbank acknowledged meeting with the victim, who came outside from the residence to meet with people in the vehicle. While the victim was standing outside the vehicle, Cutbank admitted to removing a short-barreled shotgun from underneath his clothing and firing the weapon at the victim, striking him in the head. He admitted to intentionally killing the man in court on Monday. 

Cutbank will be sentenced on Oct. 15.
