He was sentenced Thursday in B.C. Supreme Court in New Westminster to 22 months and five days for aggravated assault, plus two months probation and a 10-year firearms ban. Loubissi-Morris was also sentenced to 20 months concurrent – that is, to be served at the same time – for using a firearm to commit an indictable offence.

Charges of attempted murder and discharging a firearm were stayed.
