PASADENA, Calif. – Pasadena’s police chief is inviting the FBI to investigate the death of a college student who was shot and killed by officers last month.

Chief Phillip Sanchez says the FBI would add another independent review to the investigation of 19-year-old Kendrec McDade’s March 24 death.

Sanchez’s invitation comes days after McDade’s parents sued police, saying his death was part of a pattern of Pasadena police killing black people.

Officers say a 911 caller led them to believe McDade was an armed robbery suspect when they opened fire. He was unarmed.
