Last robber sentenced in shooting that killed ‘She’s a Pistol’ owner

April 12, 2018

A man left partially paralyzed when gunfire erupted as he and three others were robbing a Shawnee gun shop has been sentenced to life in prison for killing the shop's owner.

The Kansas City Star report that 23-year-old De'Anthony Wiley won't be eligible for parole for 25 years under the sentence ordered Thursday. He says he's "deeply ashamed."

He pleaded guilty in February to first-degree felony murder and other charges in the 2015 death of 44-year-old Jon Bieker.

The robbery of Bieker's gun store, "She's a Pistol," turned deadly when one of the robbers punched his wife. Bieker then emerged from a back room with a gun. Bieker was killed and three of the robbers wounded in the ensuing gunfight.

Wiley was the final robber sentenced to life imprisonment.
