General investigations provide clarity.
Monterrosa, a 22-year-old man from San Francisco, was fatally shot by police in Vallejo on June 2 when officials attempted to stop looters during demonstrations about George Floyd's death.
The Vallejo police said Monterrosa ran towards a vehicle that was simply rammed into a police system.
Police have said the investigator, an 18-year-old veteran from the department, opened fire because he believed Monterrosa was reaching for the butt of a pistol near his waistband. After the shootout, officials found that he had a 15-inch hammer in the front pocket of his sweatshirt and had no gun.
