BART police Officer James Crowell “acted lawfully” when he shot and killed a knife-wielding homeless man last July, according to a San Francisco District Attorney’s office report made public by BART Tuesday.

The seven-month-long investigation concluded that Crowell was acting in self-defense when he opened fire on Charles Hill on the Civic Center station platform July 3, 2011.

“Officer Crowell only fired at Hill after recognizing an imminent threat of serious bodily injury and commanding Hill to drop the knife,” the report said. “Officer Crowell fired at Hill in self-defense.”
