PASADENA (CBS) — Pasadena police have identified a man killed in an officer-involved shooting, department officials announced Sunday.

The shooting happened while officers were responding to a call of an armed robbery at about 11 p.m. Saturday, Lt. Tracey Ibarra of the Pasadena Police Department said.

Officers arrived at Orange Grove Boulevard and Summit Avenue and chased two suspects who were running away.

Police said one of the suspects tried to reach for his waistband when officers opened fire.

The suspect, identified as 20-year-old Kendrec Lavelle McDade, of Azusa, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The Pasadena Star News reported that no weapon was recovered.

The second suspect, a 17-year-old boy, was arrested soon after, Lt. Phlunte Riddle said.

    he was just trying to hold up his pants, sagging and running do not go together and he just might have been trying to get out of the way of the robber and the cops. as he did not have a gun i do not think he was robbing anyone. just happen to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. i can see it now him trying to get away from these crazy people and still they take his life. you just cant get around he HAD NO GUN !

      Sociopaths and cops can get around anything. Responding to an armed robbery. Look at that, No news where the robbery was, was it in a store, home, no information anywhere as to what armed robbery they were responding to Read between the lines. Find me a article saying what armed robbery they were responding to.

    2. Rod Man says:

      Are you freaking kidding me or are you like an OJ juror? You know, the type of person that thinks thinks a detective using the “N word” is worse than killing TWO INNOCENT people.

  2. FFL says:

    The tired old phrase rings true again: If you are not guilty of anything, what are you running for? Sad but true.. most police react to suspect’s actions..

    1. Christina39 says:

      Seriously, just who in the h*ll do you and the cops think they are that pig thugs can murder someone for running away. A crazy person could run away, a kid could run away. I person with an outstanding warrant could run away. Don’t promote yours and the pigs’ b*llsh@t that they have some God given right to murder because the lame pigs say, “Stop”. and someone doesn’t stop so they can murder them.

      1. Rod Man says:

        Christna MANSON, I truly hope your decrepid arse becomes the victim of a violent crime by these “kids”, you know, the ones that just put a bullet in the head of a Lancaster computer repair shop owner during a robbery on Friday? People like you birth these thugs and are to blame for violent crime in our society!

    2. Christina39 says:

      Shooting a running person in the back IS NOT SELF DEFENSE.

      1. Rod Man says:

        And how does your ghetto are know this thug was shot in the back?

      2. marc says:

        so is the cop suppose to WAIT to see what the dude was going to pull out of his waist band? yes this time there was no gun but what if there had been? if the cop waits to SEE FOR SURE what the guy is doing then someone could die other then the BAD GUY i say GOOD JOB OFFICER

      3. Christina39 says:

        to marc. It’s your nap time sleep head. I know you believe everything you hear but when you grow up and get to wear long pants, you can sit at the big table. You’re a joke marc. I hope you’re not a man. Well I got my wish, you’re not a man.

      4. black cloud says:

        it is where I come from after they steal from me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Christina39 says:

    these bast*ar*s have the best training. They have big big heavy body armor and tazers coming out of their as$ and there is a whole bunch of them and more arriving by the minute. They have every weapon and know how to use it, They train all day and they shoot an unarmed kid in the back for running. Well accuse me for not likeing them. I must be crazy. and You men out there who are for this, you’re jealous because you’re old and you lost it and you want to see a young man dead, Try Viagra instead of hate.

    1. Rod Man says:

      I pray to God that your ignorant arse doesn’t vote. It’s not like a video game where police can press “NEW GAME!” and start their life again!! No! They are dead for ever. No gang Banger, non-working thug is worth that. And as far as viagra, if you look as bad as you sound nothing can help you.

      1. black cloud says:

        To rod man- Your wasting your time with Idiots like cristina 39 or whatever her name is. They dont get it, when a cop tells you to stop, you dont reach for your waist, you stop. People like her think that everybody should get away with anything they want to do. Thats why this country has got to this point in time. If they dont stop when thecop says stop!!!BAM BAM BAM BAM BAM,DONE DEAL…………………….. There is one less hoodie,druggie,thief, killers,ect to breed.

      2. Christina39 says:

        Hey Limp Rod and Black Clown, They made a mistake impotent goof balls with guns. Did you read the new posts, now stick this one of your sorry as$hole. The cops have been suspended donkeys.

    2. Christina39 says:

      Black Cloud, how come so many of you men who can’t even shot blanks want to use a gun. I guess Freud was correct. take your Viagra and shut up.

  4. Christina39 says:

    ROD MAN: Please speak English. This is America.

  5. Christina39 says:

    To Rod Man: It is not apparent to you that we are talking about two distinct cases. The murderer of a computer store owner and a kid running from cops in Pasadena. Get it two different cases. Now I personally hope the murderer gets a lethal injection. A kid running from the cops is not a threat to anyone.

    And since you are so shallow, if you saw me you would agree with me, no man would need viagra with me. Grow a brain between your ears.

    1. tracy says:

      ya no man would need viagra with you because you likely have a bigger tool then they do and its up your own rear

  6. greg says:

    Shoot them all, if they aren’t guilty of this specific crime they are sure guilty of another one, no loss at all

    1. Christina39 says:

      You not only sound dumb, but crazy also.

      1. greg says:

        not at all, just tired of having good honest hard working people robbed and murdered by dark skinned losers who have no fear of jail because that’s where their friends are. Now I know you agree that’s true, if there is no fear of “punishment” there is no fear of being caught, and if they get caught they get 3 hots and a cot and get to hang with their homeys. So not dumb at all, honest people don’t 1. run from the police 2. don’t tend to be at crime scenes around at 2-3a.m. with nothing to do, so as I said, shoot em all (not all are bad but call it collateral damage)

      2. Rod Man says:

        Greg, lets keep race out of this because a person like Christina looks at everything from a racist point of view and this argument basically comes down to a battle between good (citizens and cops) and evil (criminals and people like Christina).

      3. John Jason Chun says:

        GREG, I’m with you, shoot them all and the rest from 2am to 5am deserve to get shot!

  7. Jay T says:

    Once again too much smack not enough fact! What we know here in the neighborhood…. two suspects confront man buying some food at a taco truck, couple minutes later same two suspects are seen inside same confronted mans auto, man then confronts two suspects in his car, they flash a gun, man backs away, suspects flee in opposite directions, man gets into his car, follows one suspect while dialing police, police locate and pursue suspect of foot, suspect appears to reach for weapon in pants as both officers shoot, suspect hit, dies.

    What else we know. The great city of Pasadena has one sore spot… this EXACT neighborhood. The police spend the majority of their time and resources protecting the rest of us right here on these streets…. same old same old…. time to take a stand and rid them all. You come here and do the crime u will do the time…..

    1. Eddie Bell says:

      What ever became of the gun the suspects flashed?

      1. Christina39 says:

        They hid it in Jay Ts as$h*le. It’s still there.

    2. Christina39 says:

      WOW, you’re awsome dude!!! I know I’m scared. Far out stuff!

      1. greg says:

        I got something I would more than love to hid in yours, it’s not a gun and it doesn’t shoot blanks, but from what I hear your people like it up there, seeing as the front is all stretched out from popping out babies.

      2. Christina39 says:

        Sorry Greg No children. Don’t believe in over population and neither do my people. If you are speaking of minorities liking it up there, I think you have made a mistake there. That is more of a white man’s preference and I should know because I am white and have to stay away from those kinds of men wiith preferences for that and little girls.

  8. ILLEGALS says:

    The suspects were running away meaning the police shot him in the back even if they were reaching into their wasteband..

    Sucks to be that cop who shot the suspect cox there will be an internal investigation and he’ll be on admistrative leave on it also goes on his record..

    Not to mention the public outcry that the suspect was shot in the back..

    He was doing his job..

  9. ILLEGALS says:

    Then again, all the cops need to say nowadays to justify any shooting, “the suspect reach into his waisteband”..

  10. Jay T says:

    Cops are highly trained and the fact is that both shot at the same time meaning two minds saw the same thing meaning either this was premeditated to kill the kid or they both saw the same thing and responded to save their own lives…

    Spring hunting season opened this Saturday in the SoCal jungles.

    Remember, please observe a two buck take limit per licensed hunter for the season.

    there is no limit on the number of jackrabbits and quail.

    1. John Jason Chun says:

      I got my 40 Glocks and 12G STEEL Slugs that go through engine Blocks…

      1. Christina39 says:

        Hunting humans is against the Law. But you might try changing some other nonsense laws that have been forced on you.

  12. Uncle says:

    Sir I would beg you to keep my nephews name out of your mouth. Fact is, he was a good man, he was in town to visit his father, to tell him about the new job he was due to start. He also was a full time college student studying law as a mater of fact! He was hanging with the wrong person that night and paid gravely! Please and thank you!

    1. Christina39 says:

      May he rest in peace. Sorry for your lose.

  13. Christina39 says:

    This won’t get posted, but my aunt owned an apartment building on Magnolia in North Hollywood and they passed some BS law that she had to have a welfare family move in. . She fought it but the police backed up the law and the welfare family moved in. Crime moved in too. The police were not so energetic about stopping the crime as they were about forcing the law. She lost her apartment due to declining tenants, vandalism, etc………………………….

    1. Uncle says:

      What does that have to do withmy nephews deat?

      1. Christina39 says:

        Nothing, it was directed at the other posters. Maybe what I am trying to say is that the police do what they are told to do by the government. Police seem incapable of using judgement.

    2. John Jason Chun says:

      Los Angeles County sucks!

      1. Christina39 says:

        We might all be on the same page. It’s the police following orders who would arrest you in a minute for being a vigilante.Do you really think the police are on your side?

  14. John Jason Chun says:

    Black Rotten KID..

  15. Alyssa says:

    rest in peace kendric you were a great friend and i know the person you truly are no matter what these people say about u because they don’t know the facts i love you much and will miss your presence

    1. Christina39 says:

      Get yourself an attorney now before it’s too late.

  16. Juan says:

    in another story it says the family spoke out saying he could not have been doing anything wrong because he was such a good kid. that said, WHY WAS HE RUNNING FROM THE COPS to me it is cut and dry you run from the cops you ARE GUILTY OF SOMETHING. i am 45 years old, have lived in some decent places and some not so decent i have seen the cops many many times and on a few occasions i actually fit the discription of someone they were looking for MALE MEXICAN HEAVY SET SHORT “BUZ” CUT HAIR BROWN ON BROWN so i have been stoped by police and questioned want to know why i never even got arrested or messed with I STOPED WHEN THEY TOLD ME TO. STAYED IN MY CAR WHEN I WAS TOLD TO. GOT OUT WHEN TOLD TO. even at the age of 13 when some dip stick kid who looked much like me and also rode a blue 10-speed assulted another kid when the police stoped me on my way home ON MY BIKE and told me to stay straddling it with my feet flat to the street I DID WAS I WAS TOLD. I WAS NOT SCARED I DID NOT RUN why. BECAUSE I KNEW I HAD NOT DONE ANYTHING WRONG. he who runs when met by the police is he who has a guilty conscience about something

    1. Christina39 says:

      Hey Juan, Motorcyle Officer Patrick Smith has a bogus ticket with your name on it. If you get enough, your insurance will go up and maybe your license will be suspended. Time to Wake Up Juan.

  17. black cloud says:

    chain gangs would do this country good again. Live by the sword, die by the sword. Where there is smoke, there is most likely fire. The cops said stop,he reached for his waist. he paid dearly. I least I didnt have to read that a cop hesitated to pull the trigger and in return was shot to death. Dont run when the cops cry stop.
