Patterson did shoot Peong with an assault rifle in his attempt to rob the store.  That shooting left Peong confined to a wheelchair.

Initially, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner’s office charged  Patterson with attempted murder,  and other charges.  before trial the attempted murder charge was dropped and Patterson was given 3 1/2  to 10 years in prison.   US Attorney McSwain was furious and disturbed at this deal so he corrected it.   Yesterday, August 13, 2020, Patterson was sentenced to 14 years and three months in federal prison. He plead guilty to this crime in December 2019.
