Robber who shot Seattle hotel doorman sentenced to 41 years

A man who shot a Seattle hotel doorman after robbing a Westlake Center jewelry store last year has been sentenced to 41 years in prison.

Edmond Maynor fired a handgun, narrowly missing an employee, when he robbed Express Jewelers in Westlake Mall on Sept. 21, according to Seattle police. Maynor then ran from the store and was tackled by Roberto Sandoval, a doorman at the Mayflower Park Hotel.

Maynor shot Sandoval in the arm before he was subdued and held for police.

Sandoval recovered from his wound and has since returned to the hotel.

A King County Superior Court jury convicted Maynor in June of one count of first-degree robbery, one count of  second-degree assault and two counts of first-degree assault.

In addition to a 21-year-sentence for the assault and robbery convictions, Maynor will serve a sentence enhancement of an additional 20-years because all of his crimes were committed with a deadly weapon, according to the King County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office.
