WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - A Wichita man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in prison after trying to rob a business and firing shots inside.

District Judge Jeffrey Goering sentenced 21-year-old Dallas Clayborn to 130 months in prison Wednesday.

In November, a jury found Clayborn guilty of attempted aggravated robbery, criminal discharge of a weapon and aggravated assault.

Authorities say that in April 2014, Clayborn pointed a pistol at the owner of a Phamily Express gas station.

Clayborn fired the pistol, striking a soda fountain. He then walked across the parking lot, returned seconds later and fired again, missing the owner a second time.

Police later found a bundle of clothes tied in a knot in a backyard in the neighborhood. DNA from the clothing matched Clayborn.
