New Year's Eve partying got pretty out of control early yesterday morning, as two groups of men broke out into a massive brawl on a BART train. BART officials summoned five officers to the scene, and as they tried to break up the fight and arrest people, one of them fatally shot a man, the Chron reports. The situation appeared very confused, with differing accounts of what exactly happened. The officer is now being investigated; the man, Hayward resident Oscar Grant, leaves behind a young daughter.
