According to Channel 2′s Michael Seiden, prosecutor Don Geary argued that Gunna should be denied bond because he’s one of the main people of YSL. Geary accused Gunna of being in a command position, directing hits on rival gang members.

Gunna’s attorney fired back, calling those allegations false. He also said Gunna has no intentions of directing hits and even offered to consenting a wire tap on the rapper’s phones.
