NUNATSIAQ NEWS

Lloyd Adamie, 23, was sentenced to two years in jail after pleading guilty to break and enter, uttering threats, assault with a weapon and illegal weapon possession.

Drunk and distraught following a conversation with his girlfriend on June 8, Adamie entered the home of his 22-year-old cousin with a loaded shotgun.

Adamie threatened to shoot his cousin. A struggle ensued leaving the complainant scraped and bruised. No shots were fired.

The complainant’s parents and three younger brothers were also in the house at the time. The boys hid behind a bed for protection.

“One can only imagine the fear and terror the family felt,” said Crown lawyer Ken Kehler. “It was essentially a home invasion.”

Defence lawyer Brad MacIsaac later said his client “flipped out” unexpectedly and that he “feels really, really bad about what happened.”

As part of the sentence, Adamie must to apologize to the victim, adhere to the conditions of a 24-month probation period and is prohibited from possessing a firearm for 10 years upon his release.
