Officer shot dead, 2 teens in custody
By Peter EDWARDS in Windsor Nicolaas VAN RIJN in Toronto with files from Scott ROBERTS, Camille ROSS and Canadian Press, Page A1
A Windsor police officer who "couldn't wait to go to work" was shot dead yesterday afternoon while coming to the aid of a harassed family operating a Mac's Milk convenience store in a residential section of the border city.
Two 18-year-old male suspects are in custody and a gun has been seized, Windsor police Insp. Greg RENAUD told a news conference last night.
Const. John ATKINSON, 37, the father of two young children, is believed to be the first officer in the more than 120-year history of the Windsor force to be killed on duty, said Windsor police Chief Glenn STANNARD, who noted three other officers have died in car accidents.
As word of the 14-year police veteran's death rippled across the border city, the shock was palpable.
"Today the entire city mourns the loss of a dedicated individual, a committed individual who put service above self," said Windsor Mayor Eddie FRANCIS.
Police said the incident, at 2: 05 p.m. in a parking lot near Seminole St. and Pillette Rd., in a residential neighbourhood about half a dozen blocks south of the Detroit River, began when ATKINSON approached two men.
According to local residents, ATKINSON, who lived in the neighbourhood, was responding to a call for help from the Middle Eastern family who operated the milk store. They'd complained of being harassed by "white kids," neighbours said; when they told ATKINSON about it he suggested they call him if it happened again.
They did, and he responded quickly to confront the two men, neighbours said, producing his badge and identification. That's when one of the two men allegedly pulled a gun and shot him.
STANNARD said ATKINSON "approached these individuals and during this time a firearm was produced and Const. ATKINSON was shot. Const. ATKINSON was struck by a bullet, but was able to return fire."
"The two suspects," STANNARD added, "were seen fleeing the area on foot after the shooting, leaving the officer lying on the sidewalk. And it is possible, when the suspects were fleeing, some items were discarded, such as clothing."
Two 18-year-old Windsor men -- uninjured -- were arrested shortly afterwards during a massive police search, and a firearm was recovered, but police won't say if the weapon was related to the shooting.
Investigators also wouldn't say how many times the officer, assigned to the provincial anti-terrorism section, was hit. But local residents said ATKINSON was hit at least twice, once in the throat and chest.
Dennis ROCHON was sitting on his balcony in a nearby apartment building when he heard three loud shots. Rushing outside, he found ATKINSON on the pavement.
"There was no movement," ROCHON said. "There was blood all over the place. It looked like he got shot in the throat and the side of the chest. You could tell he was dead."
Another man, identified only as Terry, said he saw ATKINSON struggling, stumbling three or four metres before collapsing.
"He tried to get up, and he fell again," Terry said.
Lloyd MENARD, in the store at the time, thought he was hearing things when the gunfire broke out.
"At first, a couple of people thought they were just like poppers on the ground, but no, it was actually gunfire," he said. "My truck's got blood all over it, so those kids must have shot him right there."
After the two suspects were taken into custody, Special Weapons and Tactics teams scoured the neighbourhood for a possible third participant in the shooting, but police later said there may only have been the two suspects.
ATKINSON, a senior constable who started with the force as a cadet, was known as a "good cop," STANNARD said.
The chief, FRANCIS, a chaplain and several of ATKINSON's on-the-force Friends visited the slain officer's wife, Shelley, and his children yesterday afternoon in an effort to console the family. ATKINSON's daughter Nicole turned 7 this week; his son Mitchell is 9.
During the family visit, STANNARD said, tears flowed freely.
"You do what your heart leads you with," STANNARD told reporters last night when asked about the visit.
"It's a tragic thing, and I think the best I can do is say you share tears, and you share hugs."
STANNARD said he and the Windsor police honour guard will be in Toronto, as planned, for the annual memorial ceremony of remembrance at the Ontario Police Memorial tomorrow at 10: 45 a.m. The memorial, at Grosvenor St. and Queen's Park Circle E., commemorates Ontario police officers slain on duty.
"Our honour guard and I will be attending… obviously with heavy hearts," the chief said.

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.

Female remains found in trash bags
Post mortem reveals 39th murder of the year was 20-year-old woman from Toronto
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter
Toronto police painted a gruesome portrait yesterday of the city's 39th murder of the year.
A 20-year-old woman was stabbed in the neck multiple times and dismembered, said police.
Her remains were strewn in several garbage bags and left at a North York housing complex for days until trash collectors found them Friday.
Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS says the collectors became suspicious after noticing the weight of the bags.
"The bags were found by the contractors, they were moved a slight distance before the body was found inside the bags," he said.
Officers from 23 Division were then called to the Martin Grove Estates, a housing complex on John Garland Blvd., south of Finch Ave. W. in the city's west end, where they confirmed the bags contained human remains.
Banks says the bags appear to have been in an alley backing on to Martin Grove Rd. for "a few days" before the body parts were found.
Police seemed to be focusing their investigation Friday on three garbage bags and a black bag with the word "Sport" written on its side in white lettering.
Yesterday, the yards of many of the peach-bricked residences were littered with garbage bags, which weren't collected Friday because police had cordoned off the area. Several residents of the complex said it's not unusual for garbage to sit in the alley until it's picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays.
Rosey MORSALEN lives in a unit near the spot where the remains were found. She says the bags, which were swarmed by flies, had been there since Tuesday but she only really noticed the smell in the early hours of Friday morning.
"It smelled like fish or meat or something," she said. "But it wasn't that."
A post mortem conducted Friday and forensic testing revealed that the cause of death was stab wounds to the neck.
She has been identified as Yasmin ASHAREH, 20, of Toronto.
Ray PARKER, who's lived in the complex for nearly 30 years, says incidents like this make him question the neighbourhood's safety. He says the area has become more rundown since he moved in.
"Well, yeah, we've had problems over here with drug dealing and that sort of thing," PARKER said.
One resident, who declined to give her name, says she never walks alone through the labyrinthine walkways of the housing complex because she fears for her safety.
Still, the woman doesn't think anyone in the neighbourhood had anything to do with the crime.
"If I killed her, do you think I'd leave her at my front door?" the woman said, gesturing to another female occupant of the house.
No one from Bonita Management, which oversees the property, would speak to the Star yesterday.
BANKS says there's no evidence the killing was gang-related. He says police will continue investigate the housing complex and the surrounding area.
"We're keeping this a very broad-scope investigation. We're looking in the general area where the body was found, and then any information that comes in," BANKS said.
"We're not going to just focus in to one certain area."

Victim's death stuns co-workers
'She was very nice. She always came in and did her job'
Police say body dumped in alley, woman killed elsewhere
By Steve RENNIE, Staff Reporter
Kori WILLIS took a long look at the photograph and placed a palm to his forehead.
"I can't believe it's her," he said.
The woman in the photograph was 20-year-old Yasmin ASHAREH, whose body was found in a bag last Friday at a housing complex across the street from the Food Basics grocery store on Martin Grove Rd. where she worked.
WILLIS, the store's assistant manager, was still visibly stunned moments after seeing ASHAREH's picture. He said ASHAREH had only worked at the store a few weeks, but was well liked by her co-workers. He recalls chatting with her during smoke breaks.
"She was very nice, very outspoken," he said. "She always came in and did her job."
Toronto police said ASHAREH died from multiple stab wounds to the neck. Her body was then thrown in a bag and left for days in an alley at the Martin Grove Estates, a housing project on John Garland Blvd., until trash collectors found it Friday.
Homicide Det. Wayne BANKS said the trash collectors moved the bag a short distance before noticing its weight and smell. They then called police to the housing complex.
At a news conference held yesterday at police headquarters on College Street, BANKS discounted earlier reports the body was dismembered. He said all the remains were intact and there were no missing limbs.
BANKS said ASHAREH had not been stabbed to death in the alley where her body was found, although the body had been there for "several" days. He said it wasn't unusual that the garbage, which is supposed to be picked up Tuesdays and Fridays, wasn't collected last Tuesday.
Those who knew ASHAREH were still trying yesterday to make sense of her slaying.
At a nearby housing co-op down the street, a man, who declined to give his name, said he spoke occasionally with ASHAREH while he shopped.
"Why would anyone want to kill her?" said the man. "Who would do something like that?"
BANKS did reveal that ASHAREH lived alone in a rented room near the complex where her body was found. He said police are trying to determine her whereabouts in the time leading to her murder, adding ASHAREH had not been reported missing. She had apparently lived in the area for "awhile," BANKS said.
He said ASHAREH was born in Canada, but her family is from Somalia. The detective said she has a brother, two sisters and a single mother.
BANKS said family, who live in Peel Region, is "devastated" by ASHAREH's death. Police are checking dental records to confirm ASHAREH's identity because family members "still don't want to come to grips that this is their daughter," BANKS said.
Police are investigating whether ASHAREH was in a relationship. BANKS said yesterday she had previously been in a relationship and police have already questioned that person.
"We're investigating every theory and we won't leave any stone unturned until we find the killer of this young lady," he said.
