Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair said that like many members of the public, he had questions following a fatal police shooting caught on video. Eighteen-year-old Sammy Yatim died after being shot multiple times on a streetcar early on the morning of July 27th. Normally a police service wouldn't comment on a case once the Special Investigations Unit was looking into it, but Blair took the unusual step of acknowledging the outcry following Yatim's death. Blair said in addition to the SIU investigation, his office would review policies and procedures in the wake of what he called a tragic event.
