Man sentenced to 13 years for shooting clerk in Topeka
Topeka A 41-year-old Topeka man has been sentenced to 13 years in federal prison for robbing a gas station and shooting the clerk.
U.S. prosecutors said Corey Eugene Johnson was sentenced Monday after pleading guilty to one count of robbery.
Johnson admitted that he robbed a Valero gas station in July 2013. When a clerk refused to surrender the money, Johnson shot the clerk several times.
A customer, who Johnson had ordered to the floor, was then forced to open the cash register before Johnson fled the store.
The clerk was hospitalized and survived the shooting.
A co-defendant, 22-year-old Shawn Michael Sneed, of Topeka, was sentenced in June to seven years in federal prison.
