Shot teen had meek side
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter with files from John DUNCANSON
Duane CHRISTIAN was no saint. But the 15-year-old boy shot by a Toronto police officer this week had a meek side, one that made him reluctant to go down into his aunt's basement because he was afraid of her cat.
It was this image that Delores RICKETTS, a cousin of CHRISTIAN's mother Simone WELLINGTON, couldn't get out of her mind yesterday as she spoke about the teen's death on Tuesday after he was spotted driving a stolen van.
Two officers patrolling the Scarborough Golf Club Rd. area saw the white Dodge Caravan just before 5 a.m.
The pair chased the van and tried to corner it in the parking lot of the Royaltown apartment building, at the corner of Lawrence Ave. E. and Scarborough Golf Club Rd.
"If you're afraid of a little cat, how can you get caught up doing all these wrong things?" said RICKETTS, describing how CHRISTIAN would sometimes stay at her Scarborough home when his mother couldn't handle him.
"When he misbehaved, I'd take him here for a while to see if I could make something out of him," RICKETTS said. "Their lifestyles were a bit different from mine."
She said CHRISTIAN would act up and show off when he was with his Friends, but was a different person when he was alone.
Since he loved cars, RICKETTS thought he would wind up working at a dealership one day.
RICKETTS said CHRISTIAN had been trying to contact his father, whom he had never met. She remembered watching him make calls during one of his visits and becoming angry when he couldn't reach him.
"He tried. He tried to be accepted," she said.
Despite his troubled past, relatives came to CHRISTIAN's defence yesterday saying police overreacted when they shot and killed the teen.
"They're not heroes, they're murderers," said Monique CRAIG, CHRISTIAN's 18-year-old cousin.
"They didn't have to shoot him. He didn't have no weapon."
The portrait that emerged from Friends and family is that of a troubled teen who had bounced from school to school.
He had several youth convictions, including robbery.
CRAIG said CHRISTIAN lived with a long-time friend for a time after his mother kicked him out of the house a few years ago. He had recently been living with his grandparents, Roy and Mori WELLINGTON, in the Royaltown apartment building.
The apartment superintendent said only that CHRISTIAN's grandparents lived in the building, not the teen or his mother.
Several neighbours of CHRISTIAN's grandparents said the family was quiet and mostly kept to themselves.
Sahra AHMED, who has lived in the building for eight years, said she didn't know the family well but never noticed anything out of the ordinary.
"I'd see them in the hall sometimes and they seemed like a nice family."
Special Investigations Unit investigators returned to the shooting scene yesterday to take more photos as they piece together what led to the fatal shooting.
More canvasses of area buildings are also being done as investigators try to find witnesses: to the shooting.
An autopsy has been performed on the 15-year-old, but the Special Investigations Unit is withholding that information until they talk further with the family of the dead youth, said Rose BLISS, the Special Investigations Unit spokesperson.
Police sources indicated the officer fired into the passenger side of the stolen white Dodge Caravan when the driver tried to run down his partner.
Under the law, officers must feel there is an imminent danger to themselves or others if they are discharge their weapon.
Funeral arrangements have yet to be made, the family said yesterday.
