SOUTH PASADENA, California – Police have released bodycam footage of the moments leading up to the death of “ER” actress Vanessa Marquez who was shot dead by officers back in 2018.
Cops were called to her cluttered Los Angeles home after the landlord requested a welfare check.
Marquez reportedly suffered from mental illness. When cops said they had to take her to the hospital for evaluation, things went horribly wrong.
The actress pulled out what police believed to be a real gun, and after she ignored their demands to drop it, officers opened fire. The weapon later turned out to be a BB gun.
