Manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of life in prison without a chance of parole for seven year.
Christopher Husbands will receive credit for time already served, meaning he will be eligible to apply for parole in 16 months when he’ll be 31.
His lawyer, Dirk Derstine, says it’s unlikely Husbands will be granted parole at the first opportunity.
This was his second trial in connection with the shooting after his conviction on second-degree murder was overturned on appeal.
Husbands admitted at trial to being the shooter but his lawyers argued he should be found not criminally responsible due to mental illness.
The Crown conceded Husbands suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder due to a stabbing months earlier, but said he was carrying out a vendetta against his attackers.
