19-year-old Kendrec McDade was killed by Pasadena police officers after a 9-1-1 caller falsely reported that two men with guns stole a backpack from his car. The police chased two teenagers through the streets, once of which was McDade. McDade stopped running and turned to face the officers, allegedly reaching for the waistband of his pants. The officers fired at McDade several times, some of the shots coming from close range. McDade would be pronounced dead at a nearby hospital shortly after the incident.
McDade was unarmed.
