Sammy Yatim on the Toronto streetcar the night he was shot

 Constable James Forcillo has pleaded not guilty to second degree murder and attempted murder in the death of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim.

Last week, jurors watched videos and heard audio recordings of the confrontation that ended Yatim's life.

Yatim was standing on an empty streetcar holding a knife when he was shot nine times during the July 2013 incident.

Forcillo's lawyer has said his client's actions were justified and carried out in self-defence.
