Wichita man sentenced to over 28 years for shooting death

Posted: Updated:

A Wichita man has been sentenced to over 28 years in prison for the shooting death of another man.

A judge sentenced 23-year-old Jeremiah Mork to 322 months in prison on Friday for shooting a man to death and wounding two others in 2017. Mork's sentence was extended by 17 months due to a parole violation on an earlier case, which resulted in a total sentence of 339 months (28.25 years).

Mork was convicted of voluntary manslaughter, two counts of aggravated battery, and criminal possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. 

The incident happened on December 9, 2017. 45-year-old Randy Gibson was in the process of moving his belongings out of a home in the 2200 block of South Parkridge with the help of two other men. Mork started firing at the men with a handgun, killing Gibson and wounding the two men with him. 

When police arrived they could still hear shots being fired inside the home. Shortly after, Mork exited the home. Officers ordered him to drop the gun, which he did, and the officers took him into custody.

An autopsy later revealed that Gibson had sustained 15 bullet wounds.
