It was a shooting that stunned the city three summers ago, when gunmen opened fire in a Scarborough playground – sending children running for their lives.
Police estimate there were about 11 children playing in the park at the time of the shooting on June 14, 2018 and believe at least 10 shots were fired.
Now, the two young sisters who were struck are describing the horror of that day in simple detail, through handwritten words and drawings.
The victim impact statements were submitted for the sentencing hearing for T’Quan Robertson, one of the men charged.
The younger sister writes, “I was outside playing and then I heard gunshots… the next I know the front of my shirt was red.”
The older sister described screaming when she saw her leg was bleeding — her statement also included a self-portrait of herself next to a basketball net and a gun.
Robertson pleaded guilty to one count of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault. He’s scheduled to be sentenced October 29.
