CALGARY- A former leader of a Scouts Canada troop has received a conditional sentence for shooting a 12-year-old scout four times with a pellet gun.

Todd Robertson had pleaded guilty to an assault with a weapon charge.

Court documents state he shot the boy during a fundraising and firearms event in Calgary last year after becoming very frustrated with the boy's behaviour.

Robertson has been sentenced to six months house arrest and must take an anger management course.

Scouts Canada expelled Robertson from the organization immediately after the July 2016 shooting.
