Posted: Updated:

Two Wichita men are set to serve seven years behind prison bars after being sentenced for an armed robbery at a Wichita bank. 

Raishat McGill, 35, and Elijah Shelton, 26 each pleaded guilty to a count of brandishing a firearm during a violent crime. During their pleas each admitted to robbing the Carson Bank, 4461 E. Douglas on June 13, 2016. 

The two men were disguised when they entered the bank, one of them flashed the gun. The robbers demanded and received money before fleeing the scene. The money they received contained a global positioning device that police used to track the defendants and arrest them.

Earlier this week, co-defendant Andre Bryant, 30, Wichita, was sentenced to seven years in the case.
