Galloway Boys street gang member Nahom "Gifted" Tsegazab has pleaded guilty to 2 counts of manslaughter and 6 counts of aggravated assault in connection with the Danzig Street barbeque shooting 2 summers ago.

Tsegazab was hosting the evening block party when the shots rang out.

He had been up against 2 counts of second-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and 22 counts of aggravated assault.

14-year old Shyanne Charles and 23-year old Joshua Yasay were killed in the shootout and 23 others were hurt.

The incident is considered to be the worst mass shooting in Toronto's history.

Tsegazab was only 19 when he was arrested.

He's been sentenced to 14 years in prison, less time served, which works out to 11 years and 5 months in jail.

    Manslaughter and aggravated assault, what a joke! This piece of trash should be locked up forever or, even better, have a bullet put through his head. Garbage like him don't deserve to live. At least castrate him so the bastard can't populate our world with more garbage.

    Too bad he didn't die in the shootout

    He should have gotten 25 years, minimum. This thug's actions terrorized a neighborhood and devastated a community. 11 years is a joke and an insult.

      @1231231 Since we can't execute him, here's a novel idea. He stays in jail until the person he killed comes back to life.
