(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) A Kansas man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison for an attempted robbery at a Trimble, Mo., bank.

Michael S. Oliva, 36, was sentenced to five years and three months in federal prison without parole. Oliva pleaded guilty to attempted bank robbery in November.

In March 2013, Oliva tried to rob the First Security Bank in Trimble. He used a replica handgun and demanded money from a clerk. Another bank employee fired two shots at Oliva, shooting him in the jaw.

Oliva fled and led police on a chase before being stopped after officers used spike strips.

According to court records, Olvia asked officers, "Are you going to let me die?"
