A man shot by a BART police officer ten years ago will soon be memorialized beneath the platform where he lay bleeding while shocked onlookers filmed the incident on their cellphones.
On Saturday, transit officials and family members of Oscar Grant will unveil a new mural commemorating him at Fruitvale Station. They will also present new street signs to rechristen a strip of road where taxis pull in, just west of the station. It’s now called Oscar Grant III Way.
