VALLEJO, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have identified a man killed in an officer-involved shooting over the weekend in the drive-through lane of a San Francisco Bay Area fast food restaurant.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Monday the man killed by Vallejo Police Saturday was identified as 21-year-old Willie McCoy, a local rapper known as Willie Bo with the group FBG.
Vallejo police say that when officers arrived McCoy was unresponsive inside a car on a Taco Bell drive-through lane with a handgun in his lap.
