SPRINGDALE (KFSM) -- Two California men pleaded guilty Wednesday (August 13) to accomplice to capital murder and accomplice to aggravated robbery after a shootout with the owners of Springdale pawn shop.

Marcus Gould and Leon Roberson pleaded guilty and were each sentenced to 80 years in prison after they attempted to rob C & S Gun and Pawn Shop on South Thompson Street in December, 2014. Of the 80 years, 43 are suspended, which means Gould and Roberson will have to serve 37 years behind bars, according to the Washington County Circuit Clerk.

Gould and Roberson exchanged gun fire with owner Clint Cornett and his wife. Neither of them were injured, but a bullet fired at the woman hit a stack of books on the counter and then hit her chest without breaking the skin.

Surveillance video of the shooting is included above.
