The trial for James Forcillo is now into it’s second day following opening statements on Tuesday.
The 32-year-old Toronto Police Constable has been charged with second-degree murder and attempted murder in the fatal shooting on a TTC streetcar that claimed the life of 18-year-old, Sammy Yatim in 2013 and he’s pleaded not guilty to both of those charges.
Steven Adam with the Special Investigations Unit has been called to the stand as the first witness in the trial. According to Adam, he arrived on the scene at Dundas Street West and Grace Street on July 23rd, 2013 where he found shell casings and later spoke with a number of witnesses.
4 videos of the incident were played in the courtroom today.
Crown lawyer Milan Rupic has shown a knife to the jury that is believed to have been the one Yatim was holding on the streetcar.
The trial is currently underway at the Superior Court of Justice , which is located at 361 University Avenue in downtown Toronto.
