“Howard Carter Looking through the Open Doors of Tutankhamun’s Second Shrine, January 1924”

James Forcillo guilty of attempted murder in streetcar shooting of Sammy Yatim

James Forcillo guilty of attempted murder in the 2013 shooting death of Sammy Yatim.
Attempted murder verdict explainedHow did the jury decide that Forcillo was guilty of attempted murder instead of second-degree murder?
A shrine honours Sammy Yatim near the spot on Dundas Street where the 18-year-old was killed.
Forcillo faced two charges related to the shooting death of 18-year-old Yatim on a streetcar in 2013, but was found not-guilty of second-degree murder.
The jury believed Forcillo was justified in firing the first three shots at Yatim, but not the second round of shots, and hence was guilty of attempted murder.
