Rapper In Car With Gun Shot Dead By California Cops

Sky News:-  Six police officers have shot dead a man they found asleep in his car with a gun on his lap, authorities in California said.

Police have not yet officially named him, but family members say he was Willie James McCoy, a 20-year-old aspiring rapper.

The shooting happened on 9 February in Vallejo, about 35 miles north of San Francisco, after staff at a Taco Bell restaurant reported a man slumped over in a car.

Police said in a statement they found the driver “unresponsive” with a gun on his lap.

The two officers did not try to wake him but called for back-up and planned to quietly take the weapon from the car.

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