The Pasadena Police Department released videos on Tuesday, May 28, of a fatal officer-involved shooting that occurred on April 13.

The shooting resulted in the death of Ricardo Guade Andrade, 36, of San Fernando, who led officers on a vehicle chase and produced a handgun before being shot in the 700 block of Oak Knoll Circle, according to authorities.

The released videos are part of the Department’s critical incident community briefing on the shooting, which aims to provide transparency and additional information about the incident, police said.

The incident began at 8:39 p.m. on April 13 when Pasadena officers contacted Andrade, who was reportedly in a white pick-up truck parked the wrong way on Hudson Avenue, a one-way street near Del Mar Boulevard.

As officers were investigating, Andrade suddenly sped off, narrowly missing striking an officer with his truck, leading to a pursuit, according to police.

Wanted for assault with a deadly weapon on a police officer, Andrade led officers on a short vehicle pursuit that ended when he crashed into the front yard of a home on Arden Road.

Police said that Andrade then fled on foot into the residential neighborhood, forcibly entering two occupied residences during his flight.

Officers located Andrade in the rear yard of a property in the 700 block of Oak Knoll Circle, assisted by a police airship.

A police dog was the first to contact Andrade.

During the incident police implored Andrade to show his hands and at one point even announced that they could not determine if the suspect was armed with a firearm, the video shows.  

After pleading with him for nearly a minute, police opened fire on Andrade after he allegedly produced a handgun and refused to comply with orders to drop the weapon.

Andrade sustained gunshot wounds and was later pronounced dead at a local hospital despite life-saving measures performed by officers and paramedics.

A handgun was recovered at the scene, according to police.

State law mandates police release videos of critical incidents within 45 days.

The incident is still under investigation, and additional facts and evidence may be discovered and reviewed.

The Department said in a statement Tuesday that it conducts thorough criminal and administrative investigations into all officer-involved shooting incidents, including interviews of witnesses and the involved officers, eyewitness statements, and an analysis of video and forensic evidence.

After the criminal investigation into the shooting is complete, it will be forwarded to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
