Hundreds are protesting a recent Toronto shooting, saying police used "excessive force" against 18-year-old Sammy Yatim on Saturday. Witnesses say Yatim was alone on a streetcar with a knife, after ordering everyone to vacate the vehicle. Videos circulating online show police firing nine shots after yelling at Yatim to drop his knife. They later used a Taser on him, and he died from his wounds.
Toronto's Special Investigations Unit is investigating the shooting to determine if excessive force was used. The Police Union holds that the video tells "only one piece" of the story. The officer who fired the shots at Yatim has been suspended with pay.
Eyewitness footage from YouTube user Marko G shows the shooting. [Warning: This video contains extreme violence.]
