Oakland: More than a hundred gather for vigil for 30-year-old shot, killed by police
There were no arrests as of 7:30 p.m.
Hogg, a father of three, was killed June 6 after a standoff with police. City firefighters called police to the area about 7:30 a.m. after seeing Hogg passed out behind the wheel of a BMW, with a loaded handgun sitting on the passenger seat, police said.
Over the next hour, police tried to wake Hogg by using a loudspeaker, breaking out the car's windows, and ordering him to surrender. When police approached the car to apprehend him, a female officer shot him twice, authorities have said. He was pronounced dead at Highland Hospital.
An attorney for the officer said she fired because Hogg reached for the pistol next to him. The police department has not identified the officer, who has been with the department for a little more than a year.
Hogg's family and family friend and activist Brooks have questioned the shooting, and called for police to release more information. Hogg was recently living in Hayward but has ties to Oakland.
His family said he wasn't a violent person and carried a gun for protection. He has been wanted since April on a parole violation and has served five years in prison after his conviction for drug possession and being an accessory to a felony, records show.
