Andrew Done, the leader of the Shooting Boys gang, was sentenced on Wednesday to 35 years in prison for the November 2020 murder of Angel Barrerio in the Bronx, among other racketeering offenses.
Done pleaded guilty before a judge prior to sentencing. According to U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Damian Williams, Done was a member of the Trinitarios gang and decided to break off and make his own gang. The decision created a rivalry between his new gang, the Shooting Boys, and the Trinitarios, which Williams says "led to increased acts of violence, multiple shootings, and the tragic murder of Angel Barrerio".
The indictment cites the Shooting Boys as a criminal organization based in the University Heights section of the Bronx, and says the gang was founded in 2017. The Shooting Boys sold crack, cocaine, heroin and marijuana while also engaging in violence with other New York gangs. 
In addition to his prison term, Done was sentenced to five years of supervised released.
He and the other nine defendants who were indicted in March of 2022 pleaded guilty to various racketeering-related charges and have either been sentenced or await sentencing.
