22-year old Dimitri Gatis who shot his younger brother through the front window of their Adelaide family home in 2019, has pleaded guilty to criminal negligence.

Dimitri Gatis 21 arrested over attempted murder of his brother
Gatis has spent 18 months behind bars.
Last year, prosecutors withdrew an attempted murder charge in relation to the shooting and Gatis entered a guilty plea to the firearms and drug-related charges.
On Friday, David Edwardson QC, for Gatis, guided his client through the process of pleading not guilty to aggravated recklessly causing serious harm, but entering a guilty plea to causing serious harm by criminal negligence.
The guilty plea was accepted by the prosecution and Gatis will now face sentencing submissions in the District Court.
