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.

McCoy died at the scene and officers recovered the loaded gun in the Mercedes. "This was senseless", David Harrison, cousin of rapper Willie McCoy, tells the Guardian.

According to the Chronicle, Saturday's shooting was the third time in recent years that Bay Area police shot an armed man after trying to wake him up. However, police said they noticed the auto was in drive, so they positioned a marked patrol vehicle right in front of the auto to prevent "forward or erratic movement" while they called for a patrol supervisor to respond to the scene. The department's police union did not immediately respond to an email Wednesday.

"Willie was a goodhearted kid", Harrison said.

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.

The officers claim they began "fearing for their safety" and fired their weapons, police said.

"While officers were still positioning a patrol unit to the rear of the vehicle, and waiting for the supervisor, the driver began to suddenly move and looked at the uniformed patrol officers".

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

He said he didn't know McCoy to own a firearm.

"Police have a campaign of executing young black men who fit a certain profile", he added. Law enforcement groups, however, argue that officers make split-second decisions in potentially deadly situations, and that lethal force may need to be an option.

Officers from the town of Vallejo responded to call at 10.30pm on Monday, requesting they check on the driver of a auto parked at a Taco Bell.

In 2017, a video of an officer straddling a man on the ground and punching him in the face several times prompted an uproar.

The video, which lasts 39 seconds, starts with the person filming saying that there are seven officers and it appears a man inside the vehicle doesn't want to get out. That officer was placed on leave. According to the statement, McCoy was reaching for the handgun when all six officers fired at him.

McCoy's family blasted police over the incident. He used music as an outlet to rap about family ties and the inequities in life.
