One of the men who shot up a playground in Scarborough two years ago, leaving two young sisters injured, has been sentenced to 13 years in prison.

Police say T’Quan Robertson was one of several men targeting an individual on the playground on June 14, 2018 where about 11 children playing. At least 10 shots were fired.

Two sisters, five and nine years old, suffered gunshot wounds in the incident.

Robertson pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault.

He will serve 12-and-a-half years in prison after being assessed a six-month pre-sentence credit
