NAACP Asks Pasadena For Police Shooting Documents In The Death Of Kendrec McDade, Unarmed Teen

04/10/12 01:20 PM ET AP

PASADENA, Calif. -- The NAACP has asked Pasadena officials for documents, audio recordings and ballistic reports related to last month's police shooting death of an unarmed black teenager.

Police say 19-year-old Kendrec McDade was shot to death on March 24 by officers responding to what turned out to be a false armed robbery report. Authorities have said that false report set in the mind of the officers that McDade was armed.

The Pasadena branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People submitted the request Monday.

Lt. Phlunte Riddle said Tuesday that copies of reports are not released during ongoing investigations.
