Mayor on Yatim shooting: "I'm very sorry what happened"

The mayor of Toronto has spoken for the first time about the shooting death of 18-year-old Sammy Yatim, since he was gunned down by police on a streetcar.

The incident happened on Dundas St near Bathurst St early Saturday morning.

While campaigning with PC candidate Ken Kirupa in Etobicoke this afternoon, mayor Rob Ford was asked about the shooting.

"We're talking about a huge election coming up on Thursday and I can't address what happened a couple of nights ago," Ford said. "It's unfortunate. It's sad. My heart goes out to the family.

"But none of us know all the facts."
