Rapper In Car With Gun Shot Dead By California Cops

Six Police Officers Shoot Dead Californian Rapper Asleep In His Car

Californian police are under internal investigation after they shot dead a young rapper in his vehicle at a Taco Bell drive-through. Police say they attempted to open the door but it was locked, and positioned vehicles in front and behind McCoy's auto as it was still in drive.

His older brother, Marc McCoy, told the Guardian: "There was no attempt to try to work out a peaceful solution".

According to Vallejo Police, officers received a call from Taco Bell employees regarding a man slumped over in the driver's seat of a vehicle at their drive-thru. Police said officers told the man several times to put his hands up, but he did not comply and "instead he quickly moved his hands downward for the firearm".

"Fearing for their safety, six officers fired their duty weapons at the driver", Vallejo Police said. Officers removed the driver from the vehicle, began rendering medical assistance and attempted lifesaving efforts on the driver.

What do Vallejo police say?

The outlets notes that it has been reported that all six officers who were investigating the crime fired shots, but there is now no word on how many shots hit McCoy.

As he continued, Marc said he believed the officers scared Willie awake, and instead of firing fatal shots, should have ordered him out the auto. However, police said they noticed the auto was in drive, so they positioned a marked patrol vehicle right in front of the auto to prevent "forward or erratic movement" while they called for a patrol supervisor to respond to the scene.

Vallejo Police said the auto was locked and its transmission in drive.

"Police have a campaign of executing young black men who fit a certain profile", he added. "We're never going to get over this". He represents hip-hop music.

The family of the young man, who goes by the rapper name Willie Bo, questioned the police response.

McCoy's death is one of at least three fatal police shootings in the Bay Area in recent years in which police shot an armed man after trying to wake him up.

"Any loss of life is a tragedy", Vallejo Police Chief Andrew Bidou said of McCoy's killing.
