He aimed at a man he shot three times. But he also shot two other people who were shopping with their small child. All three survived.

Thornhill was sentenced to up to 30 years in prison, but he appealed the verdict, saying it was too harsh as he was 17 and had mental health problems at the time of the shooting.
