Angelo Moreno, who died Friday in an officer-involved shooting after a pursuit, pulled up a shiny metal object from his truck and “held it as if it were a firearm,” according to a statement Tuesday by Napa County Sheriff’s Office.
Moreno died of multiple gunshot wounds and he tested presumptive positive for methamphetamine and marijuana, according to preliminary autopsy results, said Napa County Sheriff’s Capt. Tracey Stuart.
