Three of four people involved in a shooting incident at a Vernon 7-Eleven in May have been sentenced.

Police confirmed at the time that the four people involved knew each other and that the incident centred around drugs.

An individual jumped into a vehicle at the 7-Eleven on 39th Avenue in which a 32-year-old Vernon man was sitting, produced a gun and demanded his wallet.

The victim fled the vehicle and was shot in the shoulder. As he ran towards the store, he was assaulted by two other individuals, receiving blows to the back and the head area.

Daniel Adam Vaneck, 35, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of assault and received one day in jail and was ordered to pay a victim surcharge of $50. He was also given a day in jail, to be served concurrently, for breaching an undertaking.

In October, George Denis Deschamps, 38, pleaded guilty to assault with a weapon. He was sentenced to one day in jail, placed on 18 months probation, given a lifetime firearms prohibition and ordered to provide a DNA sample.

In August, Anthony Raymond Edwards, 41, pleaded guilty to a lesser charge of assault and was sentenced to a day in jail and ordered to provide a DNA sample.

The victim of the assault was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, treated and released, then was later arrested by Vernon RCMP and charged with seven counts, including two counts of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm.

The victim is in custody and is slated to go to trial on his matters in June 2012.
