  • Print

TORONTO - A Toronto police officer charged in the shooting death of a young man on a streetcar is due to face a police disciplinary committee today.

Const. James Forcillo (for-SIL'-oh) is expected to appear on a charge under the Police Services Act stemming from the criminal charge he faces in Sammy Yatim’s death.

Forcillo, 30, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of 18-year-old Yatim.

Yatim was shot multiple times and Tasered on an empty streetcar in July.

The incident was captured on surveillance and cellphone video on which nine shots can be heard following shouts for Yatim to drop a knife.

Toronto's police chief has appointed retired Supreme Court justice Frank Iacobucci to conduct a sweeping review of use-of-force policies.
