A gunman involved in the worst mass shooting in Toronto history has been found guilty of two counts of second-degree murder and three other charges.
The 21 year old man can’t be identified because he was 17 at the time of the incident.
The gunman opened fire on alleged Galloway Boys member Nahom “Gifted” Tsegazab at the July 16, 2012 Danzig St. block party.
The shots the 21 year old gunman fired didn’t kill anyone but they set off a chain reaction of gunfire that killed 14 year old Shyanne Charles, 23 year old Joshua Yasay and injured 22 others.
The jury found the accused guilty of all charges after two full days of deliberations after a seven-week trial.
The accused can be identified if he’s sentenced as an adult on May 6. The prosecution will be seeking a sentence of 14 years without parole against the accused.
Two years ago, Tsegazab, pleaded guilty to two counts of manslaughter and six of aggravated assault and was sentenced to 14 years.
