911 Caller Pleads Guilty To False Report That Led To Teen’s Killing By Pasadena Police

PASADENA (AP) — A man who made a 911 call that ended with Pasadena police fatally shooting a college student pleaded guilty Monday to making a false report.

Oscar Carrillo will serve a 90-day jail sentence after he pleaded guilty to two misdemeanor false reporting charges. He will also perform 90 days of community service and pay $3,000 to the Pasadena Police Department.

In March 2012, Carrillo told a dispatcher he was robbed at gunpoint by two young men. He mentioned a gun eight times during the emergency call.

Responding officers shot 19-year-old Kendrec McDade, who was unarmed.

Carrillo later acknowledged he lied about guns to get a faster police response. He was arrested for investigation of involuntary manslaughter, but prosecutors declined to charge him with that.

An autopsy found McDade was shot seven times.
