(Before It's News)


WICHITA, KAN. – A Wichita man was sentenced Thursday to 138 months in federal prison for attempting to rob a Park City liquor store, U.S. Attorney Tom Beall said.
Roland D. Ross, 28, Wichita, Kan., pleaded guilty to one count of brandishing a firearm during a commercial robbery. In his plea, he admitted that on May 24, 2016, he and a co-defendant, Michael Ray Phillips, both brandished firearms when they tried to rob the MGS Liquor Store at 6200 North Broadway in Park City.
An employee of the store produced a firearm and fired two rounds at the robbers. Ross surrendered and the store employee held him at gunpoint until police arrived.
Phillips was struck in the chest by the employee’s shots. Although he was injured, he fled the store before police arrived. He was arrested later when he sought treatment for the gunshot wound at a hospital in Kansas City. Phillips was sentenced earlier this month to seven years.                                      
Beall commended the Park City Police Department, the Kansas City, Mo., Police Department, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated and Assistant. U.S. Attorney Lanny Welch for their work on the case.
