Man Accused of 2022 Gun Store Killing in Springfield Gets Life in Prison

A man from Springfield accused of shooting a killing a gun store employee in 2022 will spend the rest of his life in prison.

Prosecutors say Zachary Cano was sentenced this week to life in prison for second-degree murder, as well as 20 years for assault and seven years for stealing to be served concurrently.

Cano was at Anchor Tactical Supply on July 6, 2022 when the employee, Colin Loderhosen, confronted him about an AR-15 that was stolen from the business earlier that week.

Investigators say an argument occurred between the two men when Loderhosen attempted to take photos of Cano and another man that was with him as they left the store.

That was when Cano pulled out a handgun and shot Loderhosen, killing him.

The man with Cano during the shooting, Jonathan Peace, was sentenced to nine years in prison on theft charges.
