California Police Shoot Dead Unarmed Black Man in His Own Backyard

Utah woman gets 50 years for role in killing two California cops

About 200 protesters confronted drivers in traffic, breaking the rear window of one vehicle as it made its way through the throng.

There was shouting but no apparent violence as frustrated fans waited outside. The game between the Kings and Atlanta Hawks started about 20 minutes late and was played before about 2,000 fans in the 17,000-seat arena.

The protest, which was organized by Black Lives Matter Sacramento, briefly spilled onto Interstate 5 after the group left City Hall.

A candlelight vigil was held to commemorate the death of Clark, who died in a hail of police gunshots Sunday night in the darkened backyard of the home where he had been staying with his grandparents.

"Something has to change", the basketball player said, adding: "Police unfortunately view black and brown men as a threat when they are certainly not".

"He liked shoes", brother Stevante Clark told The Sacramento Bee.

Clark's grandmother said she was inside the house when the shots were fired and saw him with an iPhone.

In a statement, police said that more audio and video footage would be released "in the near future".

Sacramento Police spokesman Sargeant Vance Chandler said officers gave Mr Clark commands to show his hands after he fled. Just after St. Patrick's Day revelry, they had been working on a night that had "been nuts", the dispatcher told the man who called in about a tall, thin man wearing a hoodie who was breaking windows.

Seth Stoughton, a former Tampa police officer and University of SC law professor, said the officers' body cam footage offered "very little useful visual information" and served mainly as a "powerful reminder" of that type of camera's limits.

The Sacramento Police Department released footage on Wednesday of the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man who was in his own backyard.

"When they executed him in his own backyard they offered him no humanity after the killing".

In the footage, both officers reassure each other that they have not been hit. The police said deputies in the helicopter saw Clark break a neighbor's sliding glass door before jumping a fence. As the officers run into a backyard, they turn a corner and spot Clark in the glare of their flashlights.

Although the case remains under investigation, veteran Sacramento civil rights attorney Mark Reichel reviewed the videos for The Bee and said he can not see evidence that would lead to criminal charges against the officers.

A new voice can be heard, this time from a woman, apparently among the reinforcements, who called to Clark, wanting to know if he had a weapon.

Clark was suspected of breaking into cars in a South Sacramento neighborhood.

Each officer had fired 10 bullets by the time it was over, the department said.

Less than an hour before the protest, Mayor Darrell Steinberg said Clark's death warrants a thorough review of the shooting, and of police policies and procedures. City Councilman Larry Carr decried the loss of life and said police must provide timely information. The officers involved in the shooting have since been placed on paid administrative leave.
