Third person sentenced to life for shooting of Kansas deputy

April 8, 2018

KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) — A third man has been sentenced to life in prison for shooting and wounding a Wyandotte County Sheriff’s deputy in 2015.

Wyandotte County prosecutors say 21-year-old Charles Bowser was sentenced Friday to life plus 37 years for attempted capital murder and other charges.

Deputy Scott Wood, who was off-duty, was shot several times at a 7-Eleven in Kansas City, Kansas, during an attempted robbery. He spent two weeks in the hospital before being released.

In February 2016, Dyron King and Cecil Meggerson were found guilty of attempted capital murder in Wood’s shooting.
