An Elkhart man was sentenced to 28 years for a robbery and shooting at a KFC.

21-year-old Jordan Cole was dealing with a battery charge in a case from February 2021, but authorities believed he and Tyris Jennings were involved in a string of robberies in March of 2019.

According to The Goshen News, police believe the two men shot a 45-year-old man while robbing a KFC, leaving the employee paralyzed.

They are also believed to have robbed a Burger King later that day. Warrants for the men were issued in June, and Cole was arrested on August 24.

He was sentenced to 28 years at the Indiana Department of Corrections with six years suspended on reporting probation.
