DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A Davenport man accused of threatening to shoot people has been sentenced to 15 years in prison.

U.S. Attorney Nicholas A. Klinefeldt says T. Wayne Allen, Sr., was sentenced Friday to 180 months in prison, as well as four years of parole. He has been ordered to pay $100 into a crime victim fund.

Allen was sentenced to a mandatory term as an armed career criminal after authorities found a loaded semi-automatic pistol in his pocket in August 2011. Prosecutors say he had threatened to shoot people during an argument inside NorthPark Mall in Davenport.

Prosecutors say Allen had at least four convictions for armed robbery in Nevada, Iowa and Illinois. He denied the convictions but the government proved his identity through court records, photographs and fingerprints.
