OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The widow of a veteran San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit police officer who was fatally shot Tuesday says she cherished every moment with him.
Sgt. Tom Smith's family spoke publicly for the first time Tuesday in an interview with KPIX-TV at the Smiths' East Bay home.
The officer's wife, Kellie, also is an officer with BART Police. She told the station she'll love her husband forever.
Kellie Smith was joined by Tom Smith's brothers Patrick and Ed and his brother-in-law Todd Shaheen.
Patrick Smith is a field training officer with the Newark, Calif., Police Department. He says his heart also goes out to the officer who accidentally shot his younger brother.
