Hamilton Paramedics Sentenced in Teenager's Death

Two paramedics found guilty in the 2017 shooting death of a Brock University student have been sentenced.

A pair of former Hamilton paramedics have been sentenced for failing to provide the necessities of life to a Hamilton teenager who was shot and killed. 

In 2017, 19 year old Brock University student Yosif Al-Hasnawi was shot outside the Al-Mustafa Islamic Centre after trying to stop two people accosting an older man. 

The teenager died in hospital from a single gunshot wound. 

The paramedics, fifty-five year old Steven Snively and 32 year old Christopher Marchant, were found guilty in June after telling the court they though Al-Hasnawi had been shot with a BB or pellet gun. 

He was actually shot by a .22 calibre handgun. 

The pair have been given an 18 month conditional sentence which can be served in the community. 

They must remain at their properties at all times for six months except for medical reasons or to attend employment or legal counsel appointments. 

For the rest of the sentence, they have a curfew and 150 hours of community service.
