California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced Tuesday that his office will oversee the investigation of the killing of Stephon Clark, the unarmed 22-year-old African-American man shot by Sacramento police on March 18. Clark's killing has sparked calls for reform nationwide as video revealed that the officers fired 20 shots at Clark and never identified themselves as police. We'll discuss the investigation and the police practices that may have contributed to the killing. Stephon Clark's funeral will be held Thursday morning.
