The artist died while in his own car. The police responded to his weapons.
In the United States in California, a 20-year-old rapper Willie McCoy was shot by police while in his own car parked at a restaurant. According to the relatives of the deceased, he was asleep when he was discovered by representatives of the rule of law. About this writesThe Guardian.
ix officers fired at the man “in several passes.” It is known that the rapper had a weapon that was officially listed on it. The reason for its presence was listed as “fear for their own safety.”
“There were no attempts to find a peaceful solution. The task of the police is to arrest people who violate the law, and not to take the law into their own hands. You are not a judge, jurors or executioners … We will never overcome this,” commented the incident Mark McCoy, senior brother of the murdered.
Relatives claim that the reaction of law enforcement agencies is associated with racial hostility.
According to the police themselves, they started shooting after the rapper reached for his gun in response to a request to raise his hands. After that, an order was issued to open fire. The young man from his injuries died on the spot.
Earlier it was reported that 28-year-old British rapper Cadet died in a car accident as a result of a collision of a passenger car and a van.
