Man sentenced for weapons charges in connection with non-hit Pasadena police officer-involved shooting

PASADENA — An 18-year-old Los Angeles man received 1-year jail sentence this week after admitting carrying a concealed handgun and brandishing it at a police officer who was pursuing him in July.
An officer fired a shot at Tyshawn Goodman during the July incident in the 1400 block of Garfield Avenue, Pasadena police officials said at the time. The suspect was not struck by the gunfire, though he was treated for a shoulder injury he suffered while running from police through an apartment complex.
He was originally charged with assault on a peace officer with a firearm and felony possession of a concealed handgun, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s officials said.
At a hearing Monday in Pasadena Superior Court, Goodman pleaded “no contest” to one felony count of possessing a concealed firearm and a misdemeanor count of exhibiting or drawing a firearm, district attorney’s office spokeswoman Shiara Davila-Morales said.
He was immediately sentenced to 365 days in jail, along with three years of probation, Davila-Morales said. He was given credit for 230 days of that sentence — 115 days for actual time served, and another 115 days for good behavior.
Officers encountered Goodman about 9:30 p.m. July 13 as they responded to a report of a fight, Pasadena police officials said at the time.
As officers arrived, a witness indicated a man — later identified as Goodman — had just run off and was armed with a handgun, police said.
As an officer chased Goodman through an apartment complex, he raised a handgun, and an officer fired a single shot.
Goodman, who was not struck by the gunfire, dropped his gun and jumped through an apartment window, Pasadena police Lt. Tracey Ibarra said. He was soon apprehended in the area.
No police or officers were injured in the incident, officials said.
