Jon Bieker and two of the robbers were taken to Overland Park Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
One of the robbers remained in critical condition Friday night, and the other was listed in fair condition. Another patient at Overland Park Regional was also in fair condition, but it was unknown if that was the other robber or Becky Bieker.
