McClinton worked as a law enforcement technician assigned to court services administration with the LASD and was a standout community leader who dedicated thousands of hours of volunteer service to local groups.

At about 11:10 a.m. on Christmas. Pasadena Police responded to the 1900 block of Newport Avenue regarding gunshots heard in the area. Officers located two victims of gunshot wounds, one of them being McClinton who was transported to an area hospital where he died.

The other victim is in critical condition. McClinton is survived by his wife and two children.
