PASADENA, Calif. — A California man who made a 911 call that ended with Pasadena police fatally shooting a college student has pleaded guilty to making a false report.

Oscar Carrillo was sentenced to 90 days in jail after pleading guilty Monday to two misdemeanor false reporting charges.

Carrillo told a dispatcher last year that he was robbed at gunpoint by two young men. He mentioned a gun eight times during the 911 call.

Responding officers shot 19-year-old Kendrec McDade, who was unarmed.

Carrillo later acknowledged he lied about guns to get a faster police response.

Carrillo was arrested for investigation of involuntary manslaughter, but prosecutors declined to charge him with that.

Besides going to jail, Carrillo will also perform 90 days of community service and pay $3,000 to Pasadena police.
