Willie Mccoy Biography

Willie Mccoy was an African-American Rapper. He made music under the moniker Willie Bo. Willie represented hip-hop music. The family of Willie, who was fatally shot by police at a Taco Bell in Vallejo over the weekend, is calling his death a “senseless” act.

Willie was the target of “multiple rounds” fired by six Vallejo Police Department officers, according to a report from The Guardian. The shooting took place at a local Taco Bell, an employee of which had notified authorities that McCoy was “slumped over” in a silver Mercedes in a drive-thru lane.

As older brother Marc McCoy explained  On Tuesday 12 February 2019, responding officers made “no attempt” at a peaceful resolution. Instead, he determined, they took the law into their own hands. “You’re not judge, jury, and executioner,” he said of how the responding officers handled the call.

In a statement, police have claimed the shots were fired “in fear for [the officers’] own safety.” Police also claim that McCoy had reached for a handgun in his lap at the time he was killed, though they haven’t alleged that he pointed the weapon at officers or anyone else.

Ultimately, the six responding officers all fired shots within an approximate block of time totaling four seconds. McCoy died at the scene.

“Police have a campaign of executing young black men who fit a certain profile,” Wilie’s cousin, David Harrison, said Tuesday. “Willie dressed the part. He represents hip-hop music.”
The Vallejo Police Department did not immediately respond to Complex’s request for comment.

On Saturday evening 9 February 2019 Willie Bo (real name Willie McCoy) was shot and killed by police officers in the drive-thru of a Vallejo Taco Bell. His Guardian McCoy’s accused police of racial profiling and acting as “judge, jury, and executioner” against a man who had been sleeping in his car.

Police claimed they were responding to a call placed by a Taco Bell employee on Saturday at around 10:30 p.m. The complaint claimed a customer was “slumped over” in the restaurant’s drive-thru. Officers claimed that when they arrived, they noticed McCoy was “unresponsive” and claimed he had a handgun in his lap. Police say they attempted to open the door but it was locked and positioned vehicles in front and behind McCoy’s car as it was still in drive.

McCoy then “suddenly moved,” police said, claiming he “looked at the officers” and “reached for his lap” after being told to “keep his hands visible.” Six officers then fired their guns within the span of four seconds out of “fear for their own safety.” McCoy died on the scene after he was reportedly given medical assistance.

Willie’s brother Marc McCoy blasted the police’s response. “There was no attempt to try to work out a peaceful solution,” he told the Guardian. “The police’s job is to arrest people who are breaking the law – not take the law into your own hands.” He went on to speculate that police had startled Willie and said police “should have ordered him out of the car with a bullhorn.”

David Harrison, McCoy’s cousin, claimed Vallejo police are not “trusted” in the local community. “Police have a campaign of executing young black men who fit a certain profile,” he said. “Willie dressed the part. He represents hip-hop music. They are profiled.” Harrison added that he hoped the responding officers would face prosecution. “This was senseless… shooting a man sleeping in his car. We want to make sure this never happens again to another person.”

The FADER has reached out to the Vallejo Police Department for additional comment.
