Man sentenced in Iowa grocery store standoff

CLINTON, Iowa (AP) -- A Clinton man charged in a standoff at a grocery store has been sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Twenty-three-year-old Patrick Guynn was sentenced on Thursday in Clinton County District Court. He pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree kidnapping and one count each of intimidation with a dangerous weapon and second-degree criminal mischief.

Guynn was accused of entering a Jewell-Osco store in Clinton on May 17. He was armed with a high-powered rifle and barricaded himself with two hostages in a back room. He released the hostages and surrendered about 3 hours later.
