The man who died after a police shooting on Friday was due in court this Thursday on assault charges.

Daniel Warren, 36, died in the 1500 block of Glenn Avenue after Warren reportedly pointed a rifle at police and they opened fire.

Warren was struck under the armpit and in the thigh according to an official with the coroner’s office. He was wearing body armor and armed with a rifle fitted with a high-capacity drum-style magazine.

A handgun was also found near his body.

Last March 23, Warren was arrested after he refused to comply with police while parked in a Pasadena apartment parking lot.

Police officers with lethal and non-lethal weapons surrounded the parking lot after they discovered Warren had an outstanding warrant.

No one was harmed in that incident and he was taken into custody without incident. He was released after he posted $60,000 bail.

Less than two months later he was back in jail after Pasadena Police arrested him on May 9 on suspicion of committing battery on a peace officer.

Details of that incident are not known.

Warren was released on May 10 after bond in that case. An arraignment hearing in that case had been set for June 3.
