Man whose false report led to police shooting won’t be charged

Prosecutors of The L.A. County district attorney’s office found that Oscar Carrillo lied when he said he was robbed at gunpoint by19-year-old Kendrec McDade, but the lie just “was one in a series of acts … that culminated in the fatal shooting,” the prosecutor’s report said.

Yet, Carrillo will not be charged with involuntary manslaughter after he falsely claimed he was robbed at gunpoint, setting off a chain of events that ended with an officer fatally shooting the college student.

Moments before McDade was fatally shot, Carrillo had called 911, alleging that two men had stolen his laptop computer on Orange Grove Boulevard and that he was robbed at gunpoint. McDade was eventually shot as he ran toward the police vehicle, clutching the right side of his waistband, which Deputy Dist. Atty. Scott Goodwin wrote in a report.

Goodwin also said McDade’s decisions to run from police and eventually dash toward a police vehicle blocking his path were significant intervening factors and not a “foreseeable consequence of Carillo’s 911 call.”

McDade was shot at point-blank range by one Pasadena police officer and handcuffed after being struck by a total of seven bullets, according to the Los Angeles County coroner’s office autopsy report.

Goodwin wrote that when confronted with a surveillance video of the theft, Carrillo admitted that the men never confronted him, that the computer was stolen from his car and that he never saw a gun.

In the aftermath of the shooting, Pasadena police arrested Carrillo, saying that his statements had led to the fatal shooting.
