(BCN) — Contra Costa County Sheriff-Coroner David Livingston will hold an inquest Friday into the death of 33-year-old Tyrell Richard Wilson, who was shot and killed by former Danville Police Officer Andrew Hall in 2021. Hall is in prison after being convicted of assault with a firearm and sentenced on March 4 to six years for the 2018 killing of motorist Laudemer Arboleda.

On March 13, 2021, Hall responded to reports of a man throwing rocks off the Sycamore Valley overpass onto Interstate Highway 680. At the intersection just east of the overpass, Hall confronted the 32-year-old Wilson. Hall’s bodycam footage later showed Wilson was holding a folding knife.

Hall shot and killed Wilson, a transient whose family has said he was mentally ill. The family’s attorney John Burris has said that Hall shot Wilson in the face.

The county has paid a total of $9.4 million in settlement money to Wilson’s and Arboleda’s families, even though Wilson’s killing is still being investigated. The reason for the inquest, which is convened after a fatality involving law enforcement in Contra Costa County, is to present incident facts to a jury for their deliberation and finding on the manner of death.
