OTTAWA - The three teens, next-door neighbours since they were little kids, stayed up late playing video games then were hanging out in the front yard early Saturday when the strangers walked up.

David Wood, 16, thought the young black men a few years older were going to ask him and his friends, a 16-year-old girl and her older brother, if they had a light.

“They told us to give them everything in our pockets or they were going to shoot us,” he said.
