TORONTO - A man admitted in court Thursday to shooting and killing Anthony Smith, who gained notoriety in death after a photo emerged that appeared to show him with Toronto's mayor, but his lawyer suggested there may be "further developments."

Nisar Hashimi, 23, entered an early guilty plea to manslaughter and aggravated assault just three months after Smith, 21, was shot dead outside a downtown Toronto nightclub and Muhammad Khattak, 19, was wounded.

Hashimi had been charged with first-degree murder. Smith's sister and mother said outside court that though the plea to lesser charges wasn't the outcome they had expected, they can now move on.

Smith's sister, Kamelia Taylor, lashed out at a throng of reporters, saying it was "disgusting" that no one cared about her brother's death until a picture emerged appearing to show him with the mayor.

"If it wasn't for the picture that had surfaced no one of you guys would have known who Anthony Smith was," she said. "You guys just cared about the Rob Ford story — the allegations, the accusations — without knowing what was what...You guys dragged the dead through the gutter."

The Toronto Star has reported that the same person who showed its reporters an alleged video of the mayor smoking what appears to be crack cocaine provided them with the picture.

That newspaper, as well as the Globe and Mail, reported that Khattak is one of the other men in the photo. Khattak was arrested earlier this month in a series of raids targeting suspected drug and gun traffickers.

Ford has denied the picture indicates he has ties to drug dealers, saying he takes pictures with a lot of people.

He has also said that he does not use crack cocaine and the alleged video does not exist.

Hashimi's plea means there will be no preliminary inquiry or trial at which evidence would be tendered. Hashimi's lawyer, John Struthers, said his client's decision to plead guilty so early was because he wanted to demonstrate his remorse, not because of the "huge distractions" to do with this case.

"He turned himself in immediately," Struthers said outside court. "He has pleaded guilty immediately and there may be further developments."

Struthers was asked by reporters if he thinks those developments will involve Ford and drugs.

"I suspect there's going to be more to this story out of the Traveller project," he said, referring to the raids that netted dozens of arrests and more than 200 charges.

"I expect that there will probably be a lot more information coming out in other cases. This particular case, of course, was a sidelight to that entire issue, frankly."

As part of the joint agreement between Hashimi and the Crown, he was sentenced to nine years.

There was "ongoing animosity" between Hashimi and his associates and Smith and Khattak — alleged members of the Dixon City Bloods gang, according to an agreed statement of facts entered in court.

Both groups were in the nightclub that night and Smith received a text message from an associate who wasn't there instructing him to attack a member of Hashimi's group. Once patrons of the bar spilled into the street at 2:40 a.m., Smith and Khattak did as instructed and the attack spurred a confrontation between both groups, the agreed statement said.

Hashimi pulled out a handgun and fired several shots, fatally hitting Smith in the head and thigh and wounding Khattak's shoulder.

"He acted instinctively, in the sudden excitement of the moment, and while his capacity was diminished by alcohol and drugs," according to the statement. "He did not intend to kill or to cause grievous bodily harm either to Mr. Smith or to Mr. Khattak."

Hashimi stared downward as a Crown attorney read victim impact statements prepared by Smith's mother and sister.

"He was such a happy young man, ready to take on the world," his sister wrote. "He was happy, spirited and loved by everyone he met."

Hanad Mohamed, 23, is also facing a first-degree murder charge in Smith's death and is set to appear in court July 26 via video link.

  • Rob Ford Scandal As Told Through Song

  • "The Suburbs" - Arcade Fire

    Every scandal has to start somewhere, and this one ultimately begins with the Toronto suburbs voting in Rob Ford. And despite the admission of crack smoking, alcohol abuse, homophobic, racist and sexist remarks, etc. the suburban Ford Nation still stand behind him even as downtowners storm city hall in protest. <strong>Relevant lyrics: "You always seemed so sure, that one day we'd be fighting in a suburban war / your part of town against mine, I saw you standing on the opposite shore."</strong>

  • "Busted" - Black Keys

    But things really kicked off in May, 2013, as Gawker broke the news that a video exists of Toronto mayor Rob Ford smoking crack cocaine. Busted! Or so we thought. <strong>Relevant lyrics: "Well I'm busted, yes I'm busted, but my heart won't let me die."</strong>

  • "Exit Does Not Exist" - Modest Mouse

    The next day, Rob Ford called a press conference. "I cannot comment on a tape I haven't seen or does not exist," he said before leaving his brother to field questions. Perhaps his attempted exit from the scandal would have worked but, of course, the tape does exist. <strong>Relevant lyrics: "As a matter of fact I don't recall this photo being taken, you don't even actually exist, so I just started shaking."</strong>

  • "Scandal" - Queen

    And so the scandal began. Gawker's Crackstarter campaign (to raise enough money to buy the crack tape from those who introduced it in the first place) began to soar, and anyone with a working mind believed it was only a matter of time before Ford was ousted. Because that seemed reasonable – the last word any of us would ever use to describe the Rob Ford debacle six months later. <strong>Relevant lyric: "Today the headlines tomorrow hard times, and no one ever really knows the truth from the lies; and in the end the story must hide, deeper and deeper and deeper inside."</strong>

  • "9 Crimes" - Damien Rice

    But soon, hope began to fade. Gawker's crack-video contact went missing, the Crackstarter funds were donated to worthy causes and Rob Ford continued to reign. However, allegations began to quietly build, with murmurs that the mayor did far more than just smoke crack. Maybe "nine crimes" is actually quite generous of us. <strong>Relevant lyrics: "And it’s not alright.” (Yeah! How do you like that?)"</strong>

  • "Liar" - Henry Rollins

    Soon, this became the only one word that seemed appropriate every time Ford opened his mouth. <strong>Relevant lyrics: “You feel so lucky, but your ego obscures reality, and you never bother to wonder why.”</strong>

  • "Time Bomb" - Rancid

    But then on a dark day in late October, Rob Ford stepped up and apologized – for . . . mistakes. He was sorry for making drunken mistakes. And that's all anybody needed to hear, and everything’s fine now. (Just kidding. This was merely the first drop on the roller coaster none of us want to be riding.) <strong>Relevant lyrics: "The boy’s a time bomb."</strong>

  • "Confessions" - Usher

    Then on November 5, Rob Ford came out of his office to surprise us all. "Ask me what you asked back in May," he commanded. "Exactly. Yes, I have smoked crack cocaine." <strong>Relevant lyrics: "Sittin’ here stuck on stupid, tryna figure out when, what, and how I'mma let this come out of my mouth; said it ain't gonna be easy, but I need to stop thinkin’, contemplatin’ be a man and get it over with (over with)."</strong>

  • "Apologize (Too Late)" - Timbaland (feat. One Republic)

    After further elaborating that his crack-smoking "probably occurred in one of my drunken stupors," he said, "all I can do is apologize and move on." But... <strong>Relevant lyrics: "It's too late to apologize, it's too late."</strong>

  • "Idiot" - Wavves

    Unfortunately, with every day that passed with no resignation and more allegations, Rob Ford seemed less and less like a man ready to deal with his problems, and more like, well, the title of the song in question. This was, of course, confirmed when he said “eating p---y” while wearing a sports jersey at City Hall on November 13. Relevant lyrics: "I’m not supposed to be a kid, but I'm an idiot; I'd say I’m sorry, but it wouldn't mean shit."

  • "No Snitchin'" - Chamillionaire

    And it all just kept getting worse. During council on November 12, Rob Ford began priding himself on his apologies, then admitted he "effed up" before promising he'd never "pinpoint" fellow council members because he's "not a rat." He'd also used the term on his ex-radio show ("I’m not a rat and I don't squeal on people") despite it being usually associated with the sort of thugs and gangsters Ford's been hanging out with. Relevant lyrics: "If you know what I know, then you’ll keep your mouth closed, we don't tolerate snitches."

  • "Stop" - Spice Girls

    Which brings us to Rob Ford having "more than enough to eat at home" according to his November 13 statement. Oh, and news that Doug and Rob Ford will now have a series on the Sun Network. Nope. Stop. Stop it right now. Goodbye. <strong>Relevant lyrics: "Stop right now, thank you very much."</strong>

  • "Headlines" - Drake

    Since Ford's admission, Toronto has found itself front and centre of international news, resulting in record-breaking levels of humiliation and cool-feeling on our part. On the one hand, "SNL," "The Daily Show," and "The Colbert Report" have served up the crème de la crème of Toronto-oriented satire. On the other, Rob Ford has appeared on Fox News and CNN to embarrass the city in person. <strong>Relevant lyric: "I might be too strung out on compliments, overdosed on confidence, started not to give a fuck and stopped fearing the consequence. Drinking every night because we drink to my accomplishments. Faded way too long, I'm floating in and out of consciousness."</strong>

  • "Powerless" - Nelly Furtado

    Aside from Rob Ford wearing his Argos jersey to Sunday's game and arguably cursing the team, he is being stripped of key mayoral powers by city council, rendering him a mere mortal (or councillor, I guess) who can no longer appoint a deputy mayor or executive committee members. Alas, he can still appear on his Sun TV show and Anderson Cooper 360. <strong>Relevant lyric: "But when you feel so powerless, what are you going to do?"</strong>

  • "Get Out (Leave)" - Jojo

How many more allegations need to come forward? How many more underworld ties are we going to see? How many more sports teams will have apologize for their jersey being worn by the mayor? How many more lists do we have to write? In the worlds of JoJo… <strong>Relevant lyric: "Get out – leave!"</strong>
