Drug deal shooting earns prison

(KAIR)--A Lansing man is going to prison in connection with a 2017 shooting near Easton.

According to a news release from Leavenworth County Attorney Todd Thompson, 21-year-old Andrew Foderaro was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court to 13-years behind bars.

Foderaro was charged with attempted murder, possession of cocaine, possession of stolen property, and possession of marijuana.

According to Thompson, the charges stem from the shooting that occurred just outside of Easton in October 2017, with the victim suffering gunshot wounds to the back and shoulder area as well as to his left thigh area.

Thompson said the shooting was the result of a drug deal gone bad.

Foderaro admitted to meeting the victim to purchase cocaine and marijuana, and acknowledged that he had no intention to pay for the purchase.

He additionally told investigators that once the drugs were in his possession, he retrieved a Glock 9mm from his vehicle and began shooting.
