SOUTH PASADENA, Calif. (KTLA) -- Authorities released their review along with body camera footage Monday of an officer-involved shooting that killed actress Vanessa Marquez two years ago.
Officers responded to actress Vanessa Marquez's home to conduct a wellness check on Aug. 30, 2018, after they received a call from an out-of-state family member who was concerned about her well-being, said Chief Joe Ortiz of the South Pasadena Police Department at a briefing Monday.
Marquez, best known for her roles on "Stand and Deliver" and "ER," was fatally shot during the incident, which was investigated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department. She was 49.
A South Pasadena peace officer, identified as Officer Camillo, can be heard telling Marquez that she is not under arrest but will be taken for an examination with a mental health professional at Huntington Memorial Hospital.
