Sergeant Joe Mendoza, of the LA Sheriff's Department said “Officers had gone to her home in the Los Angeles suburb of Pasadena on Thursday to conduct a welfare check when the 49 year old Vanessa Marquez grabbed what looked like a handgun and pointed it at officers”.

at which time an officer involved shooting occurred”. Further Vanessa Marquez
