PASADENA — Prosecutors Thursday were still considering whether to file charges against a Pasadena man accused of lying about an armed robbery over the weekend, starting a chain of events that ended with the fatal shooting of a 19-year-old Azusa man by police.
Oscar Felipe Carrillo Gonzales, 26, was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of manslaughter in connection the late Saturday’s officer-involved shooting, which left Kendrec McDade dead, Pasadena police officials said.
Police presented their evidence to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office Wednesday, however prosecutors had not determined Thursday whether Carrillo Gonzales would be charged, or what crime he would be charged with, according to district attorney’s officials.
Criminal defendants being held in custody are generally arraigned within two court days of arrest. Because courts are closed Friday for the Cesar Chavez holiday, a determination could potentially not be made until Monday.
According to county booking records, Carrillo Gonzales remained jailed Thursday in lieu of $25,000 bail.
