Ryan McMahon stayed on the force after shooting Ronell Foster, a 33-year-old father who police say was riding his bike without a light
Vallejo police have released body-camera footage of an officer chasing an unarmed man in 2018 and fatally shooting him in the back as he was trying to flee.
The police officer, Ryan McMahon, stayed on the force after killing Ronell Foster and went on to shoot Willie McCoy, the 20-year-old who was sleeping in his car at a Taco Bell when a group of officers killed him earlier this year.
The disturbing footage of McMahon shooting Foster, a 33-year-old father who police said was riding his bike without a light, has sparked renewed outrage about the northern California police department and its troubled history of deadly force.
Paula McGowan, Fosters mother, told the Guardian it was disturbing that McMahon killed her son and remained on the job: Why is he still on the street? Why is he still on patrol? It makes me angry as hell. It disgusts me, because it lets me know that they dont care. They have no rules or protocol.
On 13 February 2018, McMahon saw Ronell Foster riding a bicycle at night with no headlamp while weaving in and out of traffic, Vallejo police said in a statement accompanying the video, released on Monday. The officer then tried to conduct a traffic stop for vehicle code violations, at which point Foster continued riding his bike away from the officer.
