32-year-old Anthony McClain Killed By Pasadena Police
The incident happened around 8 p.m. Saturday on Raymond Avenue and Grandview Street. With major discrepancies about the events leading to the killing of yet another Black Man at the hands of the Police, they have made their agenda abundantly clear.
ABC7 (https://www.google.com/amp/s/abc7.com/amp/pasadena-shooting-police-officer-involved-department/6372584/ )reported that the officers noticed McClain was in possession of a firearm while he was still inside the car. This was the first red flag to me. ABC7 (https://www.google.com/amp/s/abc7.com/amp/pasadena-shooting-police-officer-involved-department/6372584/)also reported and i quote ” Police say he ran from the car and collapsed.”
This report insinuates that Antony McClain was shot as he fled the vehicle and collapsed as he was running away.
My source’s are painting a complete different narrative.
Witnesses say that Police approached McClain’s vehicle with their weapons drawn immediately. After a heated exchange, McClain suddenly fled the vehicle. Catching the officer’s of guard, McClain put substantial distance between him and the now trailing officer’s. With their weapons still in hand, One of the officer’s stopped, aimed, and fired the first round striking McClain in the back causing him to collapse. Witnesses say then the officer fired two more rounds striking McClain with another round. After shooting McClain the officer then pursued to put his knee in his back as he handcuffed him.
Witness say McClain had no weapon on him.
CBS (https://www.google.com/amp/s/losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/08/16/pasadena-deadly-shooting-anthony-mcclain/amp/)reported that Police stated while fleeing McClain removed a firearm from his waistband, justifying the officer involved shooting.
So my question is where did the gun come from?
Did the Officer’s witness McClain in the vehicle with the firearm or did he pull it from his waistline as he fled?
Or do we believe the witness that claim McClain had no weapon on him?
It’s unclear whether one of the media source is got their facts twisted or did the Officer’s switch theirs stories?
Now the Pasadena Police Department if promising transparency during the investigation.
