Abd’l Loubissi-Morris, 24, will serve 22 months in jail in connection with a 2017 drive-by shooting in Newton in which an innocent woman was grazed by a bullet.
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.
The victim, a 62-year-old woman, was visiting from Ontario and was not the intended target.
The shooting happened in the 7700-block of 147A Street, at 3:30 p.m. on July 9, 2017. Investigators believe it was related to the “Lower Mainland Gang conflict.”
