Pasadena police Wednesday released an edited video, raw video from various police body and car cameras, and audio captured during a May 17, 2019 officer involved shooting in which a Pasadena man was killed.

Daniel Warren, 36, died in the 1500 block of Glenn Avenue after he 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.

It was unclear if Warren from a round fired by police or by a self-inflicted gunshot. No officers were injured.

Officers were originally summoned to the scene by numerous calls from people in the neighborhood who reported seeing a man walking the neighborhood with an AR-15 and “getting crazier by the minute.”

The “Critical Incident Community Briefing video” released Wednesday is based upon a preliminary review of the incident, police said.

Investigations are still underway at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office Officer-Involved Shooting Team, and the Pasadena Police Department Professional Standards Detectives.

Additional facts may be discovered as more evidence is located and reviewed, authorities said.

After the investigation is completed the Police Chief will make a final determination whether the officers involved acted within department policy, the City’s statement said.
