The man shot by a Pasadena police officer after a traffic stop Thursday had a history of violence and once told his daughter he hoped "to do suicide by cop," according to court records.

Marco Antonio Saavedra, 44, was fatally shot after he "drew a weapon and pointed it at the officer," who pulled over Saavedra after he allegedly ran a stop sign on Southmore around 4 p.m., Pasadena Police spokesman Vance Mitchell said Friday.

The dashcam video, released late Thursday, shows Saavedra getting out of his white Nissan Altima on Spooner off Southmore.

The 40-year-old officer, whose name has not been released, shouts, "Stay in the vehicle! Stay in the vehicle!" Saavedra shakes his head and pulls out a handgun, aiming it at the patrol car. The officer fired about eight shots.
