Stephon Clark Shooting
On March 18, Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old black man and father of two young children, was shot and killed by two Sacramento police officers. Since then, the city has experienced nearly two weeks of continuous unrest and volatile protests. State Attorney General Xavier Becerra said his office would investigate the incident, at the request of the Sacramento Police Department. And today, the results of an independent autopsy ordered by Clark’s family were released: It found that Clark had been hit by eight bullets, six of which entered his body from the back and side.
