Today, BART General Manager Dorothy Dugger responded to the announcement that California Attorney General Jerry Brown would send an observer to the Alameda County District Attorney’s office as it investigates the officer-involved shooting at the Fruitvale BART Station on January 1, 2009.
The District Attorney, the Oakland Police and BART Police are each conducting separate, parallel independent investigations into the death of 22-year-old Oscar Grant.
“We welcome the Attorney General’s participation,” Dugger said. “We are committed to an effective and thorough investigation in full cooperation with the District Attorney and the Attorney General. We hope the investigation is concluded as quickly and as efficiently as possible and that the District Attorney provides the answers that BART and the public are all seeking.”
