Mayor Sampayan is holding a press conference at 1 p.m. to make a statement.
An officer-involved shooting followed looting reported at a Walgreens in Vallejo at 12:30 a.m. Tuesday. That led to a confrontation with another person who rammed into a patrol car and then led officers on a high-speed chase, police said.
The mayor initially said Tuesday he had no information about the shooting.
