Rapper’s bodyguard gets time served in Arkansas gunfight


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A federal judge in Arkansas has handed down a sentence
of time served to a bodyguard for a rapper who was performing at a Little Rock
nightclub when a gunfight erupted.

Kentrell Gwynn pleaded guilty in September to transferring a firearm to a
felon. Records indicate the 26-year-old Gwynn was sentenced Wednesday to 18
months he has served in custody plus two years of supervised release.

Gwynn still faces 10 aggravated-assault charges in state court over shots that
were fired inside Little Rock's Power Ultra Lounge on July 1st, 2017.

Prosecutors say Gwynn gave a gun to Memphis rapper Ricky Hampton, a felon who uses the stage name ``Finese2Tymes.'' More than two dozen people were injured.

Hampton has been sentenced to five years in federal prison and faces a state
trial in March.
