A Kansas City, Missouri man has been sentenced on federal charges for his role in a September 2019 attempted armed robbery and drug deal in the Manhattan High School parking lot.

21-year-old Dallas Srivisay was sentenced Monday to 96 months in federal prison and three years of supervision. He was convicted on charges of possessing a firearm during a drug trafficking incident and discharging a firearm on school property.

According to U.S. District Court of Kansas documents, an investigation revealed a botched drug deal took place Sept. 12, 2019 in the high school parking lot when 20-year-old Francisco Valdez-Garibay of Kansas City, attempted to rob Srivisay’s brother and another person at gunpoint. Shots were fired between the two parties, with Srivisay firing at the individual’s car.

After the incident Srivisay and a co-defendant led police on a high speed chase on I-70 before eventually being arrested.

Valdez-Garibay will be sentenced at a hearing May 18.
