The man the police called Baltimore “No. 1 tractor, tractor” is ready to go on trial as part of a federal extortion case against a gang accused in 10 unsolved murders.

Montana Barronette, together with 9 other men, is accused of being a member of the vicious street gang “Trained to Go” – allegedly an offshoot of the Black Guerrilla Family.

The 23-year-old Barronette was arrested more than two years ago in connection with a 2014 murder, and that was just one of a dozen murders police believed he was behind Fox Baltimore reported in August, 2016.

“[He] is very good at his craft – his craft is killing,” ex-Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Davis said at the time, according to Fox Baltimore.

At the time of his arrest, Barronette was charged with first and second degree murder, first and second degree assault, firearm use in commission of a violent crime, handgun on person and reckless endangering.

The extortion case began Monday with jury selection for eight of the suspects. One of the accused has already pleaded guilty, while another is a fugitive.

A superseding indictment against the 10 men, including the charges of extortion and drug distribution.
