911 Caller Arrested After Police Kill Teen, A California 911 caller told emergency dispatchers he’d just been robbed at gunpoint by two men who fled with his computer and backpack. Pasadena Police Chief Philip Sanchez said that call set off a deadly chain of events that led officers to shoot and kill a 19-year-old college student, later identified as Kendrec McDade, late on Saturday night.
McDade was spotted in an alley about two blocks from the spot where Oscar Carrillo told police he’d been robbed, Sanchez said Wednesday.
“The actions of the 911 caller set the minds of the officers,” Sanchez said.
McDade ran from officers until an officer used the police cruiser to block McDade’s path in an alley and rolled down his window, Lt. Phlunte Riddle said.
McDade allegedly made a motion at his waistband and the officer opened fire. A second officer who was chasing McDade on foot also opened fire, Riddle said.
McDade, who was less than 10 feet away from the patrol car when the officer opened fire, died of his injuries at Huntington Hospital. The Citrus College student was a football standout at Azusa High School.
