The final person involved in the attempted murder of Wyandotte County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Wood, who was shot seven times in March 2015, has been sentenced to life in prison.

KANSAS CITY, Kansas -- The final person involved in the attempted murder of a Wyandotte County Sheriff's deputy has been sentenced to life in prison.

Charles Bowser was sentenced to life plus 447 months in prison on Friday, according to the Wyandotte County District Attorney's Office.

Bowser, 21, was found guilty by a Wyandotte County jury last May for attempting to kill Scott Wood in March 2015. The deputy was inside a Kansas City, Kan., convenience store when three armed robbers burst in.

The two others involved, Cecil Meggerson, 36, and Dyron King, 25, were also convicted. They were sentenced to life in prison in 2016 and each received an additional 37 years for other convictions in the case.

Wood survived seven gunshots, including one in the face.

At a sentencing hearing Friday, he gave a statement to the court.

Wood called on the court to punish Bowser to the "fullest extent that the law will allow," according to a script of his statement posted to a Facebook group.

Wood testified at an earlier trial that he was in uniform when he stopped on his way home from work at a 7-Eleven on Shawnee Drive near Interstate 635.

The deputy was talking to the store clerk and had his back to the door when three armed men burst in and forced him to the ground at gunpoint.

Both Wood and the clerk were pistol-whipped. One of the gunmen took Wood’s handgun before they began firing shots at him. One bullet shattered his jaw. Another hit him in the shoulder, and five more struck him in the chest and abdomen.

"When I look into the mirror at my scars and wounds, I am reminded of what these men tried to take away from me," Wood said in his statement. "Not only did they try to take my life away from me, they also tried to take away from me the chance to spend one more day with my wife and son."
