The family of a young Bay Area rapper who was killed when police officers opened fire after he had fallen asleep in his car is demanding the release of police bodycam footage and questioning whether deadly force was justified. Police in Vallejo, California, said in a news release that the six officers shot "multiple rounds" at the driver — identified by his family as Willie McCoy, 20 — in the span of four seconds Saturday night in a Taco Bell parking lot. It's unclear how many bullets struck McCoy, but his family said they believe at least 20 may have hit his car based on the number of holes that witnesses counted at the scene. The Vallejo Police Department said it is working with the Solano County District Attorney's Office to investigate the shooting — the latest in a department that in recent years has been criticized for excessive use of force and has been the subject of civil rights complaints. In a statement, Vallejo Police Chief Andrew Bidou said a review of the shooting is in its early stages, although "any loss of life is a tragedy.
