But a source reported to The South Pasadenan that the 49-year-old Hispanic woman killed by police on Thursday was Marquez.

Cops were summoned to perform a welfare check on the star when they opened fire on her after they say she threatened them with a BB gun.

"At the time [of the shooting] there was an LA County mental health clinician here with the officers", Mendoza said.

The sheriff's department also tells ET that police continued to speak to Marquez for over an hour and a half in an attempt to offer her medical care when they became aware she was possibly suffering from mental health issues and appeared to be unable to care for herself.

Lt. Joe Mendoza added that Marquez had been suffering from eating disorders and appeared to be gravely disabled.

The incident began about noon and took place over almost two hours as South Pasadena police officers attempted to assist Marquez with a possible medical condition, the sheriff's department stated in a news release Thursday.
