The Toronto police officer charged in the shooting death of 18 year old Sammy Yatim on a TTC streetcar two years ago has pleaded not guilty in the case.
Const. James Forcillo is charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder.
His trial is scheduled to begin on Oct. 13 after jury selection takes place.
Yatim was shot and killed on an empty streetcar on July 27, 2013. The incident was captured on surveillance and cellphone video where nine shots can be heard following commands to drop a knife.
Forcillo, who has been free on bail, has been working at Toronto Crimestoppers in an administrative role.
The trial is expected to last eight weeks.
