The Bay Area Rapid Transit police Chief Kenton Rainey on Monday publicly defended how his officers responded Sunday by fatally shooting an intoxicated man who used a bottle as a weapon and had a knife.

Chief Rainey said Monday he's "comfortable" with how officers reacted Sunday when one shot and killed the man on the Civic Center station platform.

One of the officers carried a TASER stun gun, but didn't use it during the encounter.
