7/4 12:05 AM: One suspect is dead after an officer-involved shooting tonight, which has shut down the Civic Center BART station, a BART spokesman said.

An officer shot the suspect at about 9:45 p.m. after BART police responded to reports of a "wobbly drunk" near the train platform, spokesman Linton Johnson said.

The suspect, who was allegedly carrying a knife, was pronounced dead at the scene around 10:45 p.m., Johnson said.

The San Francisco Police Department is performing a criminal investigation, while BART police handle the administrative side, including whether BART policies and procedures were followed, he said.

The Civic Center station will be closed to both BART and San Francisco Municipal Railway light-rail vehicle passengers Sunday night, and it is not certain when it will reopen, Johnson said.

"No trains are stopping at Civic Center. They are running right through it," he said.

BART and Muni passengers may board at the Powell Street station, and Muni passengers can also use the Van Ness station.

7/3 11:08 PM: The Civic Center BART station is closed tonight due to an officer-involved shooting, BART officials said.

BART spokesman Linton Johnson said a police officer shot a suspect who was allegedly carrying a knife. It is not clear yet whether the officer was a BART police officer.

Trains are running through the Civic Center station without stopping.
What a joke, I'm sure the investigation will be very fair.... During the last shooting they tried to cover it up and then video got out and they had no choice but to fire the cop and give him a few months.

No one cares about your shitty police state threads.
If you didn't care you wouldn't post in them. But you know its the truth so you get angry at me for ruining your fantasy that we live in a dream world where government never lies and the only reason government takes away your rights is because they love you.

Where are the facts, Kirk? I would at least expect a "boo got shot" testimony or an eyewitness for the local Klan Watch to say they saw the whole thing and all the guy was guilty of was being drunk and using a pocket knife to clean his fingernails that was descended upon and shot in cold blood.

This story is beyond vague, yet you hold it out as "jack booted government thugs murdering innocent citizens".

What was he doing with the knife? Was he menacing other citizens? Officers? There be no meats or potatoes in this dish.

Surveillance camera footage gives a "partial view" of an incident in which a BART police officer shot a knife-wielding man in San Francisco, but does not show his actions at the moment the shots were fired, BART officials said Tuesday.

"It will be a strong tool in the investigation," said BART police Deputy Chief Daniel Hartwig, who said he had not seen the footage himself and could not discuss it in detail.

BART, San Francisco police and the San Francisco district attorney are investigating the Sunday night shooting on the platform of the Civic Center Station. The man who was shot has been identified, but his name was not released Tuesday because the San Francisco medical examiner was unable to reach his relatives.

According to the transit agency, two officers responded to a report of a man in a tie-dye T-shirt and military-style fatigue pants with an open bottle of alcohol at 9:34 p.m. Sunday.

Within one minute of arriving, Hartwig said, one of the officers fired after he was "confronted by an aggressive suspect who was holding a bottle and a knife." Hartwig said he did not know whether the officer - who gave a statement to investigators soon after the shooting - reported fearing for his own life or the life of a BART patron.

One of the two officers suffered a minor cut to his arm in the incident, officials said. Three shell casings were recovered from the officer's pistol.

Harry Stern, an attorney representing the two officers, said Tuesday that the man who was shot had first thrown the liquor bottle at the officers. "It's my understanding that he then advanced on them with a knife, which was recovered, and that he looked like he was winding up to throw the knife at them," Stern said.

BART did not identify the two officers, one a six-year veteran of the force and the other a BART officer for a little more than a year. Both have been placed on routine administrative leave.

The incident marked the sixth time a BART officer has shot a person in the 40 years since the agency formed a police force.

The most widely known of those shootings - the killing of unarmed train rider Oscar Grant at an Oakland station on Jan. 1, 2009 - was missed by the agency's surveillance cameras, which were pointed in other directions, but was filmed by passengers.

Hartwig urged anyone who witnessed Sunday's shooting or has information about it to call BART police at (510) 464-7040. San Francisco police asked anyone with information to call (415) 575-4444.

stevethrower, i don't appreciate your facts which will ultimately kill kirk's hard on for this story.
Facts are Sheeple Food. Nothing will kill Kirk's hard-on for this or any similar story. That's the Kirk way. He's incredibly loyal to the non-sensical, half-read adventures he posts.

That is no basis for a system of government.

You honestly like his shitty threads that constantly clog up the forum? It's the same fucking post with the same kid toucher message. I'm fucking sick of it, it's been months of his horseshit.
