California Cop Shoots Through His Own Windshield to Kill Suspect on His Knees

A police officer shot through his own windshield to kill a 22-year-old suspect, Sean Monterrosa, who was on his knees outside a Walmart in Vallejo, California on June 2.

Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams told KNTV the deadly shooting happened while police were trying to stop looters at the Walmart:

This individual appeared to be running toward the black sedan, but suddenly stopped, taking a kneeling position, and placing his hands above his waist, revealing what appeared to be the butt of a handgun.

Monterrosa was carrying a hammer, not a gun, but Williams tried to defend the shooting by citing the officer’s wrong perception of the non-existent firearm:

Due to the perceived threat, one officer fired his weapon five times from within the police vehicle through the windshield, striking the suspect once.
