This story is super sad! Actress Vanessa Marquez was shot and killed by police on Thursday after pointing a BB gun at police!

BuzzFeed News reports, “Police were called to perform a welfare check on Marquez, 49, after receiving a call to assist a woman possibly suffering from a medical condition.

When officers arrived at around noon, they noticed Marquez was having seizures, and paramedics were called in to assist, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, which is assisting with the investigation.

But Marquez, who appeared to be suffering from mental health issues, became uncooperative, officials said. And after officers spoke to her for about 90 minutes offering medical care, police said Marquez armed herself with a BB gun that was made to look like a semiautomatic handgun and pointed it at officers, prompting them to open fire. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.”

Rest easy Vanessa.
