Report’s Release Delayed on Pasadena Police Shooting of Unarmed Teen
The release of a report on how Pasadena police investigated the fatal shooting of an unarmed teen has been delayed after a judge granted the officers’ association a temporary restraining order.
The association, the city and any interested parties have until Sept. 23 to file arguments for or against releasing the independent report, according to Pasadena city officials.
The police officers’ association filed a request to bar the report’s public release, claiming that the report revealed personnel records on the two officers who shot Kendrec McDade, 19, in March 2012, not long after the Trayvon Martin shooting in Florida.
McDade was shot while fleeing police, who were responding to a report of an armed robbery. A person called 911 and reported his laptop had been stolen at gunpoint; later, it was revealed the victim’s backpack with his laptop in it was stolen from his car. McDade was not armed.
