A former Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods associate of Tekashi 6ix9ine has received a hefty sentence of 20 years in prison.

Aaron "Bat" Young pleaded guilty to racketeering conspiracy back in April, and so far, has received the longest sentence out of all of 6ix9ine's former Bloods crew.

His harsh sentence may be in part due to the fact that he was also facing a firearms charge as well as for trafficking for dealing heroin and fentanyl.

According to Complex, Young also shot fellow Nine Trey member Shane "Snow Billy" Hardy in January of 2018 at point-blank range in the back of the neck. Young thought he had killed Hardy, though Hardy survived. 

Fellow Nine Trey member Kristian "CEO Kris" Cruz told Complex:

"[Young] played a recording and in the recording you hear Snow talking about how he wanted to have his cousins pretend to be police officers and kidnap me. Then he said that he wanted to kill Mel Murda, a whole bunch of stuff. He said that he had to shoot him."
