A Baltimore gang member will spend almost 12 years in federal prison.

On Monday, prosecutors announced the sentencing of 23-year-old Norman Handy for racketeering and conspiracy.

Handy was a member of the Black Guerilla Family, Greenmount Avenue Regime.

Between 2005 and 2017, Handy engaged in crimes ranging from drug distribution and armed robbery.

According to his plea agreement, Handy admitted to robbing and shooting Moses Malone on March 23, 2013.

On May 2, 2013 Malone was shot and killed by Handy's half brother Wesley Brown, as he was about to testify against Handy.

In late March, Brown was sentenced to over three decades behind bars for Malone's murder.

It was also revealed, Handy assaulted and robbed two other victims on October 31, 2013.

The investigation was a joint effort of the Baltimore's ATF, FBI and Police Department.
