Two men charged in a December 2016 shooting at a Hoffman Estates shopping center parking lot pleaded guilty to robbery charges, court records show.

The victim, a McHenry man, was shot in the face but survived. Prosecutors have not provided an update on his condition.

Rasool Haleem, 33, who prosecutors say owned the getaway car used in the shooting, was sentenced to five years in prison and ordered to pay $429 in fines. Haleem, of Streamwood, received credit for 882 days in custody.

Luis A. Segovia, 21, of West Chicago, who prosecutors say drove the getaway car, was sentenced to four years in prison. He received credit for 846 days in custody.

The shooter, 29-year-old Ryan Ratliff, of Elgin, was sentenced last month to 10 years in prison in exchange for pleading guilty to aggravated battery with a firearm.

According to prosecutors, the victim had arranged to sell marijuana to Ratliff but before the victim could hand over the shoe box containing the marijuana, Ratliff pointed a gun at him and was given the box.

Ratliff ran to the car. Prosecutors say the victim chased him on foot while ordering another person who witnessed the exchange to follow in a car. The witness heard a gunshot, turned toward the noise and saw the victim on the ground with a gunshot wound to the face, prosecutors said.
