A 24-year-old man has been sentenced to 25 years in prison and 5 years of supervised release for robbing at least 6 convenience stores in the Las Vegas area.

Paul Daniel Loisel was sentenced after pleading guilty in August to five counts of interference with commerce by robbery and one count of discharge of a firearm during a crime of violence, according to the Justice Department.

The robberies took place between Nov. 22 and Dec. 16, 2015. During one of the robberies, the boyfriend of one of a store employee was shot in the chest when he attempted to stop the thief. The boyfriend was critically wounded.

This case was investigated by the FBI, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, and North Las Vegas Police Department as part of the Safe Streets Task Force and Project Safe Neighborhoods program.

Loisel was sentenced on Wednesday.
