‘ER’ actress Vanessa Marquez has been shot and killed by police in Los Angeles.
The 49-year-old pulled a BB gun on police, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Lt Joe Mendoza told the South Pasadenan that police had been called about a woman suffering from seizures.
“At the time [of the shooting] there was an LA County mental health clinician here with the officers,” Lt Mendoza said. “They began to communicate with her, she became very uncooperative and during that contact she armed herself with a handgun, she pointed it at the officers and an officer-involved shooting occurred.”
The actress was rushed to hospital where she was later pronounced dead.
