Police Shoot And Kill Man Lying On Ground In Handcuffs At Fruitvale BART
BART spokesman Jim Allison said the officer's gun went off while police were trying to restrain 22-year-old Oscar Grant at the station on East 12th Street around 2:15 a.m., shortly after a train from San Francisco arrived.
(01-01) 13:51 PST -- A young man allegedly involved in a possible scuffle aboard a BART train was shot to death by a BART police officer on the platform of the Fruitvale Station early today.
While witness accounts reported by news organizations indicate Grant was on the ground and handcuffed when he was shot, Allison would not confirm the victim had been detained.
