WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- A Wichita man has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison for shooting at police while trying to get away after robbing a fast-food restaurant.
The U.S. Attorney's office says 56-year-old Paul Sifuentez was sentenced Thursday on several charges to which he pleaded guilty in November.
The charges stemmed from a June 7 robbery at a Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Wichita. Prosecutors said Sifuentez threatened employees with a gun, the fired at a police officer as she got out of her car. The shot narrowly missed the officer but shattered the glass on a car door.
Sifuentez was arrested after he was found hiding at an apartment complex where the getaway car was abandoned.
