  • BART police chief defends officers involved in Civic Center shooting

    BART’s police chief said Monday he’s “comfortable” with how officers reacted Sunday when one shot and killed an apparently drunk, weapon-wielding man on the Civic Center station platform. One of the officers, who BART police Chief Kenton Rainey said feared for their safety, wore a Taser stun gun but did not use it during the one-minute encounter. Rainey said it was still unknown why the officers used lethal force.
