Tavares Harris was found guilty last December on assault and gun charges in connection to the May 18, 2012 shooting. Two people, including 16-year-old Jared Cannon and a bystander, were injured.

Jurors ended up being deadlocked on more serious charges facing Harris.

The man who pulled the trigger, Kevin Nguyen, pleaded guilty to attempted second-degree murder charges last December. He was later sentenced to 25 years in prison.
