Vallejo Police Officer Cleared For Shooting Man With Fake Gun

(AP) California’s attorney general will not seek criminal charges against a Vallejo police officer who fatally shot a man, even though it turned out the gun he carried was fake. Thursday’s announcement by Attorney General Rob Bonta ends his first such review under a new California law that requires the state Department of Justice to review all incidents where an officer shoots and kills an unarmed civilian in the state. The police officer fatally shot 22-year-old Sean Monterrosa on Jun 2, 2020, after responding to reports of suspects stealing from a pharmacy as peaceful protests and civil unrest swept across the country following George Floyd’s killing a week earlier in Minneapolis.
