Man sentenced for fatal shooting of guard outside Kansas bar

Posted: Updated:

A 37-year-old man who fatally shot one man and tried to kill two others outside a bar has been sentenced to nearly 19 years in prison.

Danny Queen, of Eudora, was sentenced Friday for the June 2017 death of 32-year-old Bo Hopson outside D-Dubs Bar and Grill in Eudora. He also was sentenced for attempted second-degree murder and attempted voluntary manslaughter for trying to kill two other bar patrons.

Prosecutors say his gun jammed when he tried to shoot the two other men.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports Queen was kicked out of the bar after making offensive comments to women. When Hopson offered to find Queen a ride home, Queen instead pulled a gun and shot Hopson, who was the bar's security guard.

Queen claimed he shot Hopson in self-defense.
