Summaryhttp://Crowell told investigators that Hill, who was wearing a tie-dyed shirt, was waving his arms around and spilling vodka from a Smirnoff bottle when they arrived. Crowell said he told Hill to “come back over here,â€ù and Hill responded by tossing the bottle at the officers. It shattered on a metal sign. According to Crowell, Hill began approaching with a “pretty bigâ€ù knife "with a 3- or 4-inch blade." Crowell estimated that Hill was 10 feet away when Crowell noticed the knife. Crowell told investigators he drew his gun and yelled, “Drop the knife!â€ù He said Hill then cocked his arm and took a step toward him. Crowell said he believed “for certainâ€ù that Hill was going to throw the knife. https://www.baycitizen.org/news/bart-police-shooting/da-clears-bart-cop-charles-hill-shooting/
