Frederick man gets 20 years for shooting pharmacist

February 01, 2008

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- A Frederick man has been ordered to serve 20 years in prison for shooting a pharmacist during an attempted robbery.

Fifty-three-year-old Maynard Mangold was sentenced Thursday on a charge of attempted second-degree murder. The prison time is part of a 30-year suspended sentence.

The shooting happened April 29 at the drive-through window of a CVS store on Rosemont Avenue. Pharmacist Lee Gustafson was wounded in the shoulder. Prosecutors say Gustafson has suffered post-traumatic stress disorder since the shooting and has only limited use of his arm.

Mangold fled the shooting without getting cash or drugs. He apologized to Gustafson during the sentencing hearing and said at the time of the shooting he was stressed by the impending death of his girlfriend.
