On June 2, 2020, Sean Monterrosa, a 22-year-old Latino American man, was fatally shot by Vallejo police officer Jarrett Tonn. Monterrosa was allegedly on his knees and had his hands above his waist when Tonn shot him through the windshield of his unmarked police pickup truck. The police later said Tonn shot him because he believed a hammer in Monterrosa's pocket was a gun. Monterrosa later died at a local hospital.

The event sparked outrage in the Bay Area, particularly in Vallejo, which has a long history of police violence, excessive force complaints, and high-profile killings, including the February 2019 shooting of Willie McCoy.

Sean Monterrosa's sisters were peacefully protesting with 17 protesters outside the gate of Governor Gavin Newsom's home October 2, 2020. They were requesting updates on their brother's case since they had not received answers. They were unarmed and met with a team of 30 officers. We are requesting that the Sean Monterrosa's sisters and the 17 protesters are released from Sacramento County Jail and that all charges are dropped. We are also requesting Governor Gavin Newsom to meet with the family of Sean Monterrosa on this public health emergency of police brutality. 

Call Sacramento County Jail to Demand their release (916) 874-6752 or Sacramento County Community Relations (916) 874-7774
