A man has been sentenced over the April 2018 Barclays Center shooting involving rappers Tekashi 6ix9ine and Casanova 2x.

Fuguan "Fubanger" Lovick, who was identified by 6ix9ine as the shooter, was sentenced to 85 months in prison.

Lovick pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon in aid of racketeering, which carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison, and to brandishing a firearm in furtherance of a crime of violence, which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of seven years in prison and a maximum sentence of life.  

He was initially scheduled to be sentenced before Judge Engelmayer on August 19, 2019.

"Today, Fuguan Lovick admitted to a brazen and dangerous act of violence. While inside the Barclays Center with Tekashi 6ix 9ine and other Nine Trey gang members, Lovick fired a gun to intimidate rival gang members. We continue our daily work with our law enforcement partners to keep our communities safe and to vigorously investigate acts of violence committed by gang members," U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said at the time.

Lovick was also sentenced to three years of supervised release, and he must not make contact with fellow Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods, or he could be looking at more time behind bars.
