Watch: Vallejo fatal officer shooting of rapper “Willie Bo” McCoy purportedly captured
The 39-second clip was taken Saturday night at the Taco Bell on Admiral Callaghan lane, where 21-year-old Willie “Willie Bo” McCoy was shot and killed by six still-unidentified Vallejo officers. The video does not depict the actual shooting but contains audio of police yelling commands and dozens of shots being fired.
McCoy has not yet been officially identified as the person killed by police Saturday night around 10:30 p.m., but his family has identified him to reporters. Police say the officers fired shots after McCoy — who was allegedly asleep in the drive-thru with a gun in his lap — was startled awake and didn’t respond to commands to raise his hands.
The video is entitled “Vallejo Police OverKill Feb 9 2019” and was posted by user “Rolly Gabun” on Wednesday morning. By 6:35 p.m. it had garnered more than 500 views.
