6 years for Sweeney
Hells Angels member Dale Sweeney has been sentenced to six years in prison for his role in a drive-by shooting on Winnipeg's busiest street in 2001.
In September, Dale Sweeney was convicted of discharging a weapon with intent to maim, wound or disfigure in an incident on Portage Avenue in the summer of 2001.
Justice officials believe Sweeney was taking revenge on another man, Kevin Sylvester, because Sylvester had shot and wounded Sweeney's brother.

Because Sweeney has spent nearly a year and a half behind bars already, he will serve a maximum of three more years.
