In shocking news out of the US, Californian rapper Willie Bo, real name Willie McCoy, has been shot to death by six police officers who allegedly opened fire on the MC after he was found sleeping in his auto.
David Harrison, identified by BuzzFeed as McCoy's cousin, shared the incident in a Facebook video on Monday.
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.
Officers opened fire on Willie McCoy after they he moved "suddenly", and reached for the handgun in his lap. Officers ordered McCoy to "put his hands up", but said he "quickly moved his hands downward for the firearm".
"In fear for their own safety, the officers discharged their weapons at the driver".
An internal police investigation is now underway, with McCoy's family calling for the officers involved to face criminal charges.
The 21-year-old rapper was pronounced dead at the scene.
The officers have since been placed on administrative leave, and the issue is being investigated by the Solano County District Attorney's Office.
Authorities have not confirmed his identity and said the autopsy and toxicology reports are pending.
And this is not the first time the Vallejo Police Department has come under scrutiny following complaints of excessive force.
He said: "The police's job is to arrest people who are breaking the law - not take the law into your own hands". Speaking with The Guardian on Wednesday, McCoy's accused police of racial profiling and acting as "judge, jury, and executioner" against a man who had been sleeping in his auto. "Police have a campaign of executing young black men who fit a certain profile", he said. "We're never going to get over this".
