A man armed with a rifle and handgun and wearing a bullet proof vest died from at least one gunshot wound he sustained in a confrontation with police in Pasadena earlier this year, authorities said Thursday.

Officers responded to a call of a man with a gun in the 1500 block of Glen Avenue near Howard Street, just east of the Foothill (210) Freeway, at 6:30 p.m. on May 17 and spotted the suspect standing in the yard of a home, wearing “a ballistic bullet proof vest and holding a firearm,” according to the Pasadena Police Department.

Video from officers’ body-worn cameras showed officers yelling at the suspect, who pointed a weapon at them, firing at least one shot and officers returning fire.

The suspect, identified as Daniel Warren, then ran in between two homes, where officers located him and used non-lethal means in an attempt to get him to surrender, but he did not move from his location, police said.

Officers approached Warren and took him into custody, then began performing life-saving efforts, but he ultimately died from his injuries, the department said.

A rifle with a large capacity drum style magazine and handgun were found near Warren, police said.

No officers were injured.

The shooting remains under investigation by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office Officer Involved Shooting Team, and the Pasadena Police Department Professional Standards Detectives.

After the investigation is completed the Pasadena police chief will make a final determination whether the officers involved acted within department policy.
