Oscar Grant

Grant’s story was brought to significant national attention after video recordings captured his murder. Interest in his case resurfaced with the critically-acclaimed film, Fruitvale Station starring Michael B. Jordan. After reports of a fight at the Bay Area Rapid Transit, Johannes Mehserle was restraining Grant and he was allegedly resisting. The officer said he was going to tase him and instead, he shot him in the back. Grant was unarmed and pronounced dead the following morning.
