PASADENA (CBSLA) — The Pasadena Police Department Thursday released video of a deadly police shooting that left one man dead.

According to the department, the fatal shooting happened just before 8 p.m. Saturday on Raymond Avenue and Grandview Street after two officers conducted a traffic stop.

Police said the driver of the vehicle was cooperating with officers when the passenger, identified as 32-year-old Anthony McClain, allegedly got out of the vehicle and ran. At one point, McClain allegedly removed a handgun from the waistband of his pants.

“Fearing for both his an the public’s safety, the officer fired his weapon twice, striking the suspect at least once in the upper torso,” an earlier statement from the department said.

McClain, a father of three, was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead. Police said a firearm was recovered from the scene, and that McClain was on probation for robbery.

“Unless Mr. McClain had pistols pointing from his back, he should be alive and well and with his children who are behind me right now,” Caree Harper, the family’s attorney, said at a Thursday news conference.

Harper also said that the family disputed the claim that McClain had a weapon, and insisted he was holding onto his belt buckle as he ran — not a firearm.

“A bullet shot to the back is rarely, if ever, justified,” Harper said. “And it is not justified in this case.”

Shortly after the videos were released, protesters took to the streets of Pasadena, calling for the names of the officers involved to be made public.

Pasadena police said the shooting was still under investigation by the department and the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The department said the city would also initiate an independent third-party review.

Additional videos from the shooting can be viewed on the police department’s website.

Seems to be some discussion about the glock being a P80 frame.

  1. Where this all ends is with majority-black neighborhoods walled off and left to their own devices, a la that fine documentary Escape From New York/LA.

    Actually, that ought to be implemented right now. Just tell the nice activists that, no, we won’t be responding to “issues” in their areas, and that they’re responsible for policing within them. Oh, and by the way–You don’t get to come outside your areas without posting a significant bond that will be forfeited if you commit a crime outside your little un-policed enclaves.

    Black criminality is a thing we need to deal with, and enabling the way we have been doing? That’s not going to last. Eventually, the hispanic community is going to be the majority, and then the gloves will come off–Because, the Mexicans don’t feel one iota of “white guilt”, and they hate them some blacks. Take a look at the “black community” in Mexico–There really isn’t one, despite the fact that they imported about the same number of slaves as North America. Why isn’t there one? They killed them off, more-or-less. The campesinos didn’t like the competition. Same thing is happening down in SoCal, right now–Ethnic cleansing. As soon as the Mex run everything, it will accelerate. The blacks think dealing with whitey was a bitch, wait until it’s brown-on-black violence.

    I used to think that it was mostly white-on-black prejudice we needed to worry about. After spending enough time around Mexicans, I’m pretty sure we white folk are gonna be standing on the sidelines going “WTF? What. The. Actual. Fuck… WTF, dude…?” when it all goes down.

    At a minimum, our new brown overlords are gonna be cracking down on the welfare benefits and judicial set-asides like you won’t believe. They’ve got no sympathy and no mercy for the blacks whatsoever. My biggest shock, once upon a time, was hearing one of my Mexican-American senior NCOs telling his mostly-black element that their salad days of slacking and getting over were done; he was tired of that shit, and “…brown don’t play that game, homie…”. They turned him in for racism, but since he had the brown race card, it went nowhere with the equally brown EO folks. Black was no longer in charge, see…

    The end-game for this BLM bullshit ain’t going to go the way the activists think it will.

    • Indeed. This is one of the reasons why the black militant elements are doing this crap just now.

      See, the blacks used to be the minority group to whom the DNC catered.

      That’s no longer the case. The brown folks are in town, and in numbers larger than the black folks, and the black folks are not fond of how quickly the brown folks have gotten higher on the DNC victim taxonomy.

  2. I had speculated to myself that it was a Polymer80 before the article mentioned it. I took a close look at it due in part to its very strange failure mode. Now that I think about it, the thing looks like it came apart at the frame rails, which might make sense for a Polymer80.
