Suspect in Little Rock mass shooting, wanted again



Little Rock, Arkansas –After a Little Rock club shooting left more than 20 people injured five years ago, authorities confirm a suspect originally arrested several years ago never returned to Arkansas.

According to Little Rock police, detectives are searching again for Cordero Ragland in connection to the 2017 Power Ultra Lounge shooting.

They have made several other arrests in the investigation, police said.

According to a police spokesperson, Ragland was never properly extradited by jail staff from Memphis to Arkansas following his arrest.

Authorities do not believe he’s currently in Arkansas.

The night of July 1, 2017, is a tragic memory for those injured in the shooting. Police said shots rang out at a Finesse2Tymes appearance around 2:30 that morning. Rapper Finesse2Tymes, whose legal name is Ricky Hampton, is currently in federal prison on charges stemming from a nightclub shooting in Forrest City. Police also arrested Tyler Jackson and bodyguard Kentrell Gwynn, who was released in 2019.

Ragland is facing five counts of aggravated assault, possessing a firearm by certain persons, and tampering with physical evidence.
