Const. James Forcillo
Const. James Forcillo fired two separate volleys at 18-year-old Sammy Yatim, who was wielding a small knife on an empty streetcar.
"I just watched someone's son get killed."
"The public no longer has an appetite for police simply saying, 'This is use of force.'''
Christy McGregor says she first got uncomfortable when Yatim shifted one of his legs so it was blocking one of her sisters.
"He was hostile, angry, belligerent, and he was very defiantly and prominently displaying a knife in his right hand."
"There were, in my view, alternatives at the time to the use of deadly force."
Const. James Forcillo has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder and attempted murder in the death of the 18-year-old.
CTV News and other media outlets have identified the officer involved in the shooting of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim as Constable
