Six California police officers fatally shot a 20-year-old rapper who was sleeping in his car outside a Taco Bell, authorities said.

Police received a call at around 10:30 p.m. from a Taco Bell employee to report that a man was “hunched over” behind the wheel.

Officers responded to the call in order to check on the welfare of the driver. As they approached the vehicle, they could see that the adult male driver was unresponsive, and that he had a handgun on his lap.

After they called for backup, McCoy “suddenly” moved, officials said in a statement.

Vallejo officers fired “multiple rounds” at the man, identified by family as Willie McCoy, reports the San Francisco Chronicle. McCoy had a handgun on him when the officers fired out of “fear for their own safety” on Saturday night, according to reports. The family of McCoy, whose rap name was Willie Bo, said that police had racially profiled the young Black man and that there was no justification for using deadly force against someone who was sleeping.

“There was no attempt to try to work out a peaceful solution,” Marc McCoy, Willie’s older brother, told the Guardian. “The police’s job is to arrest people who are breaking the law – not take the law into your own hands. You’re not judge, jury and executioner … We’re never going to get over this.”

According to a statement made by police, officers told McCoy to “keep his hands visible” but that he “quickly moved his hands downward for the firearm.” Police said six officers all fired shots within roughly four seconds, but they did not disclose the number of bullets that struck McCoy. The officers continued shouting commands before removing him from the vehicle and “rendering medical assistance”. He died on the scene.

An autopsy is pending.

    The fact here is…if he had been ” WHITE” it wouldn’t have happen!! You know that’s the truth. The cops shoot to kill…not injured. Ask yourself this question, what would happen if it were black cops killing white boys? I went through the civil unrest, if you don’t stand for something, you will stand for anything!! Get it together black people, the war isn’t overseas….;IT HERE”!!

    Butter Pecan’s purpose is to attempt to agitate Blacks on this forum. This ignorant psycho does not have a life and has nothing better to do. Ignoring this idiot is the best possible solution.

    I just love how the police constantly use the excuse that they “fear for their lives”. I know there are times when they do, but I don’t believe this was one of these cases. I can see if he was pointing the gun at them and they had to shoot, but he made a sudden move with the gun stll in his lap.
