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.
