Former ‘ER’ actress Vanessa Marquez shot dead by police

Vanessa Marquez was reportedly killed in an officer-involved shooting

Vanessa Marquez, former ER star, was shot and killed by police in South Pasadena, California, on Thursday after she pulled a BB gun on them, the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirms to ET. When they entered, Marquez armed herself with a BB gun and pointed it at the officers.

Police called medical personnel, including a county mental health clinician, who arrived on the scene to offer care and speak to her.

Police said that while speaking to Marquez, she appeared unable to care for herself and they were aware that she was possibly suffering from mental health issues when she became uncooperative.

Sheriff's Homicide Lt Joe Mendoza said the woman, later identified by sources and commenters on Twitter as Marquez, had eating disorders and appeared to be gravely disabled.

Marquez is best known for playing nurse Wendy Goldman on the popular NBC medical drama ER starring George Clooney between 1994 and 1997.

"Women who don't play the game lose [their] career", she added. Marquez says in the bio section of that page that she was terminally ill and living with celiac disease.

In 2017, Marquez made the blacklisting allegations against Clooney, tweeting that he "helped blacklist me when I spoke up about harassment on ER".

Clooney denied having any knowledge Marquez was blacklisted. She also played the role of Ana Delgado in the 1988 film "Stand and Deliver", and appeared in the flicks "Night Children" and "Blood In, Blood Out", among others. "I take her at her word", the actor said at the time. I had nothing to do with casting.

Marquez accused the cast and producers of "ER" of conspiring to have her blacklisted after she reported being sexually harassed and being discriminated against on the basis of race. If she told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to. I was an actor and only an actor.

She was also a subject in the second episode of Intervention in 2005, in which she admitted she was near bankruptcy and was addicted to shopping.
