DENVER (AP) - A man charged in a fatal shooting outside a Denver concert venue in 2004 has been sentenced to 27 ½ years in prison.

The Denver District Attorney’s Office announced Wednesday that 36-year-old George Allen IV was sentenced Friday for the Aug. 4, 2004, death of 21-year-old Kurt Levias outside the Bluebird Theater. Allen previously pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and committing a crime of violence, which is a sentence enhancer.

The Denver Post has reported that Levias’ cousin, local rap artist Twyla Rivers, who goes by a stage name “Lady MEnace,” was at the concert and Levias was working as her bodyguard.

A fight broke out during the concert when Rivers got onstage and several women in the audience began flashing gang signs. Levias was shot after the altercation spilled out into the street.
