The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas announced on Thursday, Sept. 23, that a man who robbed and shot two people in Dallas was sentenced to seventeen years and six months in federal prison.

According to court records, Quentin Alonso Cordova, 23, received his sentencing on Tuesday for his role in two separate robberies in which he shot victims. Cordova was arrested in August 2020.

Court records show Cordova admitted to shooting a person on Aug. 12, 2020, with a Glock pistol. Cordova shot the person in the parking lot of Bombshells restaurant at 7501 N. Stemmons Fwy. in the Stemmons Corridor area. The 23-year-old also admitted to stealing the victims’ gold and diamond necklace after shooting them.

According to court records, he admitted to another robbery on Aug. 28, 2020. Cordova used a different gun this time and shot someone multiple times in the parking lot of Bucks Wild Cabaret at 11327 Reeder Road in Northwest Dallas. He also admitted to stealing a gold, diamond-encrusted Rolex watch and gold bracelet from that victim.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Texas said that federal agents used the National Integrated Ballistic Information Network to match the shell casings found at the robbery scenes to the firearm used by Cordova.

In the Thursday news release, prosecutors said Cordova pleaded guilty in June 2020 to two counts of being a felon in possession of a firearm. He already had multiple felony convictions before these robberies.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office added that the 23-year-old is also facing multiple state criminal charges. These include aggravated assault, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, aggravated assault on a security officer, burglary of a vehicle, unlawful possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, theft of property, and evading arrest.
