Getaway Driver in Ole's Shooting, Robbery Found Guilty

Posted: Updated:

A jury finds a Missoula man guilty of charges for his involvement in an attempted murder and robbery at a convenience store last September.

Twelve jurors found Preston Hanna guilty of accountability for attempted deliberate homicide and accountability for robbery.

Court documents show Hanna drove the getaway vehicle for Christopher Burch last September.

Police said Burch shot the Ole's convenience store clerk with Hanna's .22 rifle when the clerk refused to hand over money.

The clerk, Adam Gallegos, suffered major injuries and a stroke from the gunshot wound, but he survived.

Gallegos said he sympathizes with Hanna's family because their loved one now faces a prison sentence.

"Nobody should have to go through that, but at the same time you know, you do the crime, you pay the time."

Gallegos no longer works at Ole's and continues to recover from serious injuries and multiple surgeries.

Hanna's sentencing is scheduled for July 10 at 10 a.m.

Burch is scheduled to appear in Missoula District Court on June 26.
