Police responded to her residence on a welfare check before the shooting took place.

Actress Vanessa Marquez was shot and killed by South Pasadena police on Thursday after officers responded to her residence on an emergency medical call, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter. Detectives from the sheriff’s office are assisting in the investigation.

The article goes on to state the following:

The incident occurred around 1:48 p.m. in the 1100 block on Fremont Avenue, according to authorities.

Officers from the Pasadena Police Department responded around noon to the 49-year-old Stand and Deliver actress’ home to conduct a welfare check. When officers arrived on scene, Marquez was having seizures and a request for additional medical personnel was sent, according to authorities.

At some point, while speaking to Marquez, authorities say she became uncooperative and appeared to be possibly suffering from mental health issues. A Los Angeles County Mental Health clinician was also sent to the scene.

Police and the clinician spoke to Marquez for about 90 minutes, at which time she allegedly retrieved a gun and pointed it at the officers. She was shot and killed. Authorities say it was later discovered the firearm was a BB gun.

  1. Anymore with Police shootings, Police can’t wait around to inspect a Damn gun pointed at them! Would you get close enough of mentally unstable person was pointing a gun at you? Maybe she thought she was in an acting scene!

  2. She probably had a death wish and did not want to do it herself. It’s called suicide by cop. You do not point anything even resembling a gun at a cop; that is extreme stupidity or a death wish. Her lifestyle and career were probably over, due to her seizures, so I can see her doing it on purpose!
