The family of McCoy, who went by the stage name Willie Bo, said they believe their loved one was racially profiled and argued there was no reasonable justification for shooting and killing a man asleep in his car.
The deadly incident unfolded Saturday as officers arrived to perform a wellness check after a restaurant employee called to report a man “slumped over” the steering wheel of his car in the drive-thru. Upon approaching the vehicle, officers found the man unresponsive and noticed a handgun on his lap, police said.
Officers allege they tried opening the doors but found they were locked and that the car was still in drive. As backup was called and the officers on-scene continued assessing the situation, police said the driver “suddenly” moved, according to a statement. Officers ordered McCoy to “put his hands up,” but said 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 continued yelling commands at the driver and ultimately reached through the broken glass of the driver’s window to unlock the vehicle. Officers removed the driver from the vehicle, began rendering medical assistance and attempted lifesaving efforts on the driver.
McCoy was pronounced dead at the scene.
