ROANOKE, VA -

Another member of the infamous "Goonz" gang received his prison sentence this afternoon in U.S. District Court in Roanoke.

Tony "Taliban" Taylor, his nickname resulting from a tattoo on his body, got 28 years in prison for a number of different crimes.

Investigators said, in 2009, Taylor held a gun to the head of a 5-year-old girl, and threw the girl's 7-year-old sibling across a room, during a robbery.

The "Goonz" gang targeted mostly drug dealers during their robberies between 2008 and 2009.

The gang's leader, George Fitzgerald, testified against Taylor at the hearing.
