KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A Missouri man has been sentenced to more than eight years in federal prison for a robbery and shooting at a northeast Kansas fast-food restaurant.

Nicholas Martell McGinnie, 26, of Kansas City, Missouri, previously pleaded guilty to one count of robbery. In the plea, he admitted that on December 1, 2012, he went to rob a McDonald's restaurant in Leawood.

McGinnie hid in the men's restroom for about half an hour waiting for the restaurant to close. Once closed, he confronted the manager and demanded money at gunpoint, but the manager resisted and tried to push McGinnie out the door. During the struggle, McGinnie fired the gun, hitting the other man in the legs. That store manager has since recovered.

McGinnie was arrested about a month later after police recovered fingerprints.

Today, he was sentenced to 100 months in federal prison. That sentence will run consecutively to a 60-month sentence in a Missouri case.
