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 1, 2017.

Prosecutors say Gwynn gave a gun to Memphis, Tennessee, 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.
