Sean Maher and Denis Cuff
OAKLAND, Calif. — An emotional BART board apologized Thursday for the death of an unarmed passenger who was shot in the back by a transit police officer on New Year's Day.
Responding to a public outcry over the death of Oscar Grant III at the Fruitvale BART station, the transit board also vowed to create a new committee to look into police issues and consider the possibility of setting up a civilian police review board for the transit agency.
