JOHNSON COUNTY, KS (KCTV) -

She's A Pistol shooter Londro Emanuel Patterson III, 22, has been sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for 25 years, plus an additional 94 months.

That means he'll have to spend about 32 years behind bars before he is eligible for parole.

The sentences are consecutive. Restitution is set at $6,520.

In May of this year, he was found guilty of first-degree murder, attempted aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and aggravated battery.

Patterson received the maximum sentence.

The trial was in relation to the death of Jon Bieker.

Bieker, 44, died after the Jan. 9, 2015 shooting at She's a Pistol, a store catering to female gun owners, at 5725 Nieman Road. His wife, Becky Bieker, was injured as well. 

On Friday, it was an emotional day in court. Family members on both sides of the case and Patterson himself spoke. 

"He did not deserve leniency," Becky Bieker said. "He did not deserve any kind of short sentence or mercy and the judge recognized that. He gave him the sentence that is allowable by law and the maximum one that our Kansas laws allow."

"This pain is nothing absolutely nothing compared to what he has put me through, compared to what he has put his mother, his sister, his nieces and nephews through," she said. "He does not deserve your sympathy."

"No wife should have to bury her murdered husband and no mother should have to watch her son get a life sentence," Patterson said. "Once again, to Ms. Bieker and her family, I truly am sorry and I'm asking for forgiveness."

Bieker said forgiveness will not happen. 

"I have no reason to forgive him," she said. "I do not owe him anything. Especially my forgiveness. I do not owe him any space in my mind, any space in my day, my thoughts, anything."

"I think that, to the best of our ability, justice has been served," she said. "I don't think that 25 years to life plus 94 months is enough. I think that he never needs to be on our streets again, but given what my options are, it's good enough."

As this chapter draws to a close, she said she will continue to fight for justice and remember her late husband. 

"I'll remember all the little things that people take for granted every single day because those are the things that matter," she said.

Court documents confirmed surveillance video from that fateful day in 2015 captured the entire shootout on tape.

According to the documents, De'Anthony Wiley went into the gun store first just after 2 p.m. and was talking with Becky Bieker and looking at a gun.

Three more men, who police identified as Londro Patterson, Hakeem Malik and Nicquan Midgyett, entered the store a few minutes later.

As soon as they walked in, Wiley pulled a gun and pointed it at Becky Bieker.

Midgyett jumped the counter and hit her, knocking her to the ground. That was when her husband, Jon Bieker, comes from the back and opens fire.

As the shots continued, Jon Bieker was shot in the leg. He also suffered "multiple gunshot wounds," according to court documents. He died at an area hospital from his injuries.

Wiley, who both Biekers apparently hit with gunfire, was found collapsed inside the front of the store.

Johnson County prosecutors then charged Wiley, Patterson, Midgyett, and Malik, with first-degree felony murder, attempted aggravated robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery and aggravated battery.
