Little Rock police announced last night they had filed their first charges related to shots fired in the Power Ultra Lounge shootings July 1 that wounded 25.

Kentrell "Dirt" Gwynn, 25, of Memphis, already jailed on a federal charge, was charged with 10 counts of aggravated assault because shell casings found at the scene matched tests of bullets fired from his gun.

Gwynn was a bodyguard for the rapper, Ricky Hampton, known as Finese TwoTymes, performing when the shooting started at the downtown club. He and Hampton were arrested the next day in Birmingham. Hampton has been charged with shooting at someone in a Forrest City club. Gwynn was charged with providing a gun to a felon, Hampton.

Police said they are still seeking suspects in the case. It's unknown if any witness has come forward to specifically identify those who fired guns that night in the crowded club. No charges have been filed specifically related to any of those wounded.
