Leroy Barnes, the man shot and killed after apparently firing on Pasadena police officers had been in a shootout with Pasadena police in the early 1990s, according to authorities.
Barnes apparently had a long criminal history that includes convictions for tresspassing, spousal battery and assaulting an officer. A story is coming and we’ll continue to flesh out the details of the shooting throughout the day.
*UPDATE from Nate McIntire:
We don’t have the shootout confirmed and the charge against him for assaulting an officer (w/o a weapon) was dismissed. Convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, battery, driving without a license and littering are all confirmed. The web update has all the right info
