California official to review Vallejo police after shootings

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — The California attorney general says his office will review the Vallejo Police Department and recommend reforms to its use-of-force policies. The announcement Friday comes days after officers killed a 22-year-old man suspected of stealing amid protests. Attorney General Xavier Becerra said the review of the department was tied to recent high-profile officer-involved shootings, not a specific incident. Vallejo police shot Sean Monterrosa early Tuesday after reports of a break-in at a pharmacy. Officers thought he had a firearm but the item was actually a hammer. Police Chief Shawny Williams said he has implemented a number of reforms since taking over the department and the biggest changes are ahead.
