Pasadena police blamed Carrillo's 911 call for the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Kendrec McDade. Officers thought McDade was armed after responding to Carillo's burglary call that indicated McDade was armed. Carillo's claim turned out to be false.
Carrillo was jailed on an immigration hold. The District Attorney's office said the case needs further investigation before charges can be filed. He was released Tuesday with an electronic monitor.
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released a statement Tuesday afternoon:
"Oscar Carrillo-Gonzalez was transferred to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody Tuesday morning (April 3) following his release from the Pasadena City Jail. After coming into ICE custody, ICE Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) officers reconfirmed that Mr. Carrillo had been previously removed from the United States to Mexico in April 2006. Consistent with ICE's enforcement priorities, which include previously deported aliens, ERO reinstated Mr. Carrillo's former removal order. However, at the request of the Pasadena Police Department, ERO has agreed to postpone Mr. Carrillo's removal until the conclusion of the criminal justice proceedings related to the recent officer involved shooting. While that matter remains pending, Mr. Carrillo is being released from ICE custody on electronic monitoring."
