Update 5:34 p.m.
The video has just been posted to BART's You Tube Channel. It's embedded below. Note this advisory from BART:
"While the platform video does not show Charles Hill, please be advised that due to the nature of the incident, viewers should use discretion in choosing whether to view it."
Update 3:50 p.m.
KQED's Mina Kim is at the BART press conference and has viewed the video. She reports the following:
The video captures a partial view, mainly one officer, who fired his weapon. His face is covered by a black box to protect his identity. You see the officer flinch, which is when BART Police Chief Rainey believes the bottle is thrown by Hill.
You can see the officer draw his weapon and fire just as a knife flies past him. It ricochets off the train and spins off, coming to rest on the platform behind the officer.
It's blurry so BART circles the knife in blue in the video.
BART also showed blown-up images of the knife, which is about eight inches long, with a four inch blade and black handle.
The officer who fired is not the one who sustained cuts. That was the other officer who is not captured much on the video.
The Police Auditor will not say if he agrees or not with Rainey's narrative that the officer fired as Hill chucks the knife.
Rainey just clarified, He did not mean the shot was in response to a knife being thrown. He believes Hill raised his Arm and moved aggressively toward the officer. That's when he fired.
Update 3:45 p.m. BART says the press conference is still going on. But they did release this statement, which includes this:
While the platform video does not show Charles Hill, please be advised that due to the nature of the incident, viewers should use discretion in choosing whether to view it.
On July 3, Charles Hill, a 45-year-old homeless man, was shot dead by a BART police officer at the Civic Center station in San Francisco. Police said Hill appeared to be drunk and was moving toward two officers, wielding two knives and a broken bottle, when one of them shot him.
BART said it would not release the video while witnesses were still being interviewed. Now, apparently, that process is over.
