  • Vanessa Marquez

She appeared as Ana Delgado in the Edward James Olmos-starring film Stand and Deliver in 1998, and in 27 episodes of ER as nurse Wendy Goldman.

"Officers from South Pasadena Police Department were in an apartment complex at the location conducting a welfare check for a female resident who was possibly suffering from a medical condition".

After speaking with police and a Los Angeles County Mental Health clinician for about an hour and a half, Marquez reportedly pointed a BB gun at the officers, who then shot and killed her. In 2017, Marquez accused George Clooney for allegedly blacklisting her after reporting sexual harassment while filming on set for the hit series, ER.

A former actress on the medical drama "ER" was fatally shot by police after she displayed what officers reportedly believed was a firearm during a welfare check. Once they retrieved the weapon, it was determined to be a BB gun.

The newspaper claims that Marquez, starring in Stand And Deliver and Twenty Bucks, died after the authorities shot her once in the upper body. She was also featured in an early episode of the A&E show "Intervention" in which she discussed her compulsive shopping habits and other psychological ailments.

Lt Joe Mendoza told the South Pasadenan that police had been called about a woman suffering from seizures.

"If you're truly fortunate, you get to live your dream and do the work you were put on this Earth to do", she wrote.

According to a Facebook page appearing to belong to Marquez, the actress suffered from a number of health issues, including celiac disease, common variable immune deficiency (CVID), fibromyalgia, and osteoporosis.

"This looks awful", one unidentified woman said at the scene. Marquez tweeted that the blacklisting began when she made complaints to the show's executive producers, John Wells.

Clooney claimed to have done not such thing, writing in a statement, "I was an actor and only an actor". According to reports, no police officers were wounded during the incident.

The police had gone to check on her after her landlord called to say that she was in some kind of trouble, which is when the tragic scene then unfolded.

"She told me she wouldn't mind passing away at home and haunting the lovely building she lived in as she was in love with where she lived".
