A policeman accidentally deadly shot by another officer in Bart


Smith was the first Bart police officer killed in the line of duty in 42 years. Tom Smith had a wife and a 6 year old daughter. A single shot was fired on the scene. The name of the officer who shot Smith was not unveiled.
A regular procedure for Bart’s police officers is to wear cameras on their lapels, excepting painclothes detectives. It’s not clear at this moment if Tuesday this rule was respected. Bart Police Chief Kenton Rainey declared that entering a home is the most dangerous type of work police do. He appreciated this could’ve been a case of target misidentification, poor communication poor lack of coordinated effort.
