Pasadena police officers who fatally shot the 19-year-old unarmed man did not record any audio of the incident on personal recorders, officials said Monday.
The March 24 shooting of Kendrec McDade, by officers Jeff Newlen and Mathew Griffin is now the subject of four investigations by Pasadena police, the L.A. County district attorney’s office, the county Office of Independent Review and the FBI.
McDade, a former Azusa High football standout, was African American and the two officers are white.
Pasadena police have already revealed that because the police car was not rolling in emergency response mode with lights and sirens on, no video or audio of that night’s events were captured. The “lights and sirens on” mode automatically triggers recording devices in the police cruiser.
Lt. Phlunte Riddle says neither officer had a personal voice recorder on at the time that would have captured the sounds of the incident. "
