She later "became uncooperative, and appeared to be unable to care for herself", according to the police report, which also noted that she may have had mental health issues.

She was rushed to hospital, but she died for the injuries reported.

The officer said that the police were summoned by the landlord, who said the woman was in "some kind of trouble".

The tragic event began to unfold at around 8pm BST (12pm local time) when South Pasadena police responded to a home in the 1100 block of Fremont Avenue after getting a call about a woman suffering from seizures. Officers called paramedics and a mental health specialist to the scene, and they continued to try to communicate with her for 90 minutes.

Sheriff's Homicide Lt. Joe Mendoza said Marquez "had eating disorders and appeared to be gravely disabled". If she was told I was involved in any decision about her career then she was lied to.

According to the South Pasadenan, the actress was shot by police in her California home during a routine welfare check.

In recent years, Marquez had written about suffering from seizures and living with celiac disease on her Facebook page.

The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is investigating the incident, as is protocol for all police-involved shootings, according to the report.

She wrote on Twitter at the time: "Clooney helped blacklist me when I spoke up about harassment on ER".

Clooney later denied that he had any part in the apparent blacklisting of Marquez. Marquez is best known for her appearances in ER, an episode of Seinfeld and in the 1988 movie, Stand and Deliver.

On ER, Marquez played the role of Nurse Wendy Goldman between 1994 and 1997.

Marquez recurred throughout the first three seasons of ER, appearing in 27 episodes overall. Her account was mostly retweets of anti-Donald Trump posts.

The former actress in 2017 claimed that she was blacklisted by former "ER" co-star George Clooney after she complained of being sexually harassed by crew members and "ER" actor Eriq La Salle.
