A third man has been sentenced to life in prison in the killing of a suburban Kansas City gun shop owner during an attempted robbery.

Nicquan Midgyett, 22, of Kansas City, Missouri, won't be eligible for parole for 29 years under the sentence imposed Thursday for first-degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and aggravated battery.

Gunfire erupted during the January 2015 attempt to rob a Shawnee, Kansas, gun store called She's a Pistol, which catered to women.  Jon Bieker, 44, was killed and three would-be robbers, including Midgyett, were wounded. Bieker's wife also was punched.

Two other defendants, Hakeem Malik and Londro Emanuel Patterson, were sentenced earlier to life in prison. A fourth defendant, De'Anthony Wiley, will be sentenced next month.
