A 911 caller whose claims led to the death of black teenager Kendrec McDade (pictured above) in California will not face punishment.
Pasadena, CA, police blamed false claims by Oscar Felipe Carrillo for the deadly shooting:
On March 24, Carrillo falsely alleged in a 911 call that he was robbed at gunpoint by two men. A robbery had taken place.
Carrillo later admitted no weapons were involved, and he’d lied to speed police response. His lawyer later said Carrillo was being used as a scapegoat by police.
One of the suspects, 19-year-old Kendrec McDade, was shot and killed by Pasadena officers who claimed they were on high alert because of the weapons claim.
Police said they opened fire when they saw McDade reach for his waistband in an alley.An autopsy found that McDade was shot seven times.
