BART police officer Sgt. Thomas Smith Jr., a 23-year veteran of the force, was killed during an apartment search on January 21, 2014. He died from a gunshot wound after a single round passed through a small gap in the bulletproof vest he was wearing -- an extraordinarily rare outcome that compounded the tragedy of his death by friendly fire (mercurynews.com).
