DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) - A 30-year-old Davenport man has been sentenced to a maximum of 15 years in prison for involuntary manslaughter and other crimes.

The Quad-City Times reports (https://bit.ly/1ypABO0 ) that Devyn Fix was sentenced Thursday for the shooting death of 18-year-old Thomas Taylor in September. Fix was convicted by a Scott County jury last month.

Authorities say Fix was tinkering with his .40-caliber handgun while playing board games with Taylor and another person on Sept. 26. The gun went off and hit Taylor in the chest.

Per his sentence, Fix will serve up to 10 years on a charge of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute followed by five years for involuntary manslaughter. He will simultaneously serve two five-year sentences for other charges.

Fix has received credit for 140 days already served.
