LITTLE ROCK, AR (KAIT) - The Little Rock Police Department announced a third arrest in the mass shooting at a nightclub in July 2017.

According to the department's Facebook page, detectives got warrants to arrest Cordero Ragland, 26, on Thursday.

Ragland faces five counts of aggravated assault, possession of a firearm by certain persons, and tampering with evidence.

However, deputies booked Ragland in the Shelby County, TN jail back in November 2017 on charges for possession of a handgun and evading arrests.

Little Rock police say they'll extradite Ragland to Little Rock for the charges on the Power Ulta Lounge.

Region 8 News reported last year on the shooting at Power Ulta Lounge Little Rock. The shooting injured dozens and sparked concern among many public figures.

Ragland has a criminal history in Memphis. Police have arrested him about 10 times.

In April 2015, police accused him of leading a mob attack on a Good Samaritan at a BP gas station.

He pleaded guilty to an aggravated riot charge that year.

Ragland was released in May 2016 for those charges and less than a year later he faced another charge.

Police said he crashed into a woman during a drag race in February 2017.

The crash sent Lisa Sloan to the Intensive Care Unit with a coma.
