Ontario's SIU lays 2nd-degree murder charge against cop involved in Toronto streetcar shooting
Ontario's police watchdog has charged a Toronto police officer with second-degree murder in the shooting death of an 18-year-old man on a streetcar.
Sammy Yatim died last month after being shot multiple times and Tasered on an empty streetcar.
Nine shots can be heard on cellphone videos that captured the incident, following shouts for Yatim to drop a knife.
The final six shots appear to come after he had already fallen to the floor of the streetcar.
The Special Investigations Unit announced today they have charged Const. James Forcillo with second-degree murder.
The SIU says Forcillo has not yet been arrested because an arrest warrant was just issued.
