A Toronto cop will appear in a downtown courtroom Tuesday to be officially charged with second-degree murder in last month’s high-profile shooting of a knife-wielding 18-year-old on a TTC streetcar. Ontario’s Special Investigations Unit (SIU) began probing Sammy Yatim’s death after he was shot multiple times in a July 27 confrontation with police — a shooting that was caught on video and posted online, sparking public outrage.
