City Seeking Criminal Investigation
in Destruction of Evidence
VALLEJO, CA – The City has discovered that the windshield from the Vallejo Police vehicle involved in the June 2nd Officer Involved Shooting of Sean Monterrosa has been destroyed, and the vehicle has since been placed back into service without prior consultation with the Police Chief or City Attorney’s Office.
The City of Vallejo had already requested that the Solano County District Attorney’s office or Attorney General Xavier Becerra’s office conduct the criminal investigation on this Officer Involved Shooting. The City has now requested the destruction of evidence also be included as part of that criminal investigation. Additionally, the City is in contact with the FBI. The request is for one of these entities to conduct the criminal investigation. 
An employee has been placed on administrative leave while the City retains an outside investigator to conduct the administrative investigation into the destruction of evidence. 
The public will be notified as further details become available.
