Rapper’s bodyguard faces 10 charges of aggravated assault in mass shooting at Little Rock club

A 25-year-old Memphis man who worked as a bodyguard for the rapper who was on stage when shots rang out at a Little Rock nightclub last month is facing 10 charges of aggravated assault in the mass shooting, which injured more than two dozen people.

The Little Rock Police Department said that Kentrell Gwynn, who was already in jail on federal gun charges tied to the July 1 shooting at Power Ultra Lounge and a separate shooting outside a different Arkansas club, was served warrants Friday afternoon.

Judge Set to Rule on Whether Seal Beach Mass Murderer Faces Death Penalty

Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Goethals will rule Aug. 18 whether to block mass murderer Scott Dekraai from receiving the death penalty and determine if the Sheriff’s Department can be trusted to turn over all records ordered by the court.

Attorneys gave their final arguments Thursday to close an evidentiary hearing which started in late May in which Dekraai’s attorneys alleged the District Attorney’s office and Sheriff’s Department  failed to provide court-ordered records in the past. The defense lawyers contend its possible the DA and Sheriff’s Department still haven’t turned over everything and suggest Dekraai  should be spared the death penalty because he won’t receive a fair trial on the penalty he is to face for the murders.

Manchester man implicated in fatal Mass. shooting; faces rape, kidnapping, armed robbery charges elsewhere

A Manchester man has been implicated in a Massachusetts crime spree Monday night that involved the killing of a pizza delivery driver in Lynn, Mass., and the rape of a store clerk in North Andover, Mass., the Boston Herald reported.

Brian G. Brito, 21, has been charged with aggravated rape, kidnapping and armed robbery by North Andover police. Authorities say he is a person of interest in the earlier shooting death of Sina Zangiband, a pizza delivery driver working in Lynn.

“I can’t believe it. I can’t digest it. I can’t process it in my mind — it couldn’t happen to him,” Marven, best friends with Sina Zangiband, told the Herald. Marven spoke outside the Zangliband family home in Salem, Mass., where the anguished cries of relatives could be heard.

Brito appeared in Peabody District Court Tuesday morning and pleaded not guilty to unlawful possession of a firearm, unlawful possession of ammunition, and

Kansas woman faces sentencing in mass shooting case | The …

A federal judge will weigh the mental state of a woman who gave her ex-boyfriend guns he used in February’s mass shooting at a Kansas lawn equipment factory in deciding what her sentence should be this week.

Though the memo is sealed, earlier defense filings cited an evaluation in March that concluded Hopkins suffered from PTSD and battered woman’s syndrome at the time of the offenses.

Prosecutors say Hopkins gave a semi-automatic rifle and a handgun to Cedric Ford, a convicted felon who took those weapons to the Excel Industries plant in Hesston on Feb. 25 and shot several people, killing three and wounding 14. Ford was shot
