Sacramento police officers who shot Stephon Clark receiving death threats

California mayor 'horrified' by video of fatal shooting; police fired 20 rounds at unarmed man

The march then moved to Interstate 5 - which was shut down as a result - before protestors formed a human chain to block the entrance to Golden 1 Center, delaying a Sacramento Kings game. Several people, including one member of the clergy, would get the growing crowd moving again as the protesters eventually went to an area where there were several courthouses. The game started about 15 minutes late while the arena was mostly empty.

The shooting incident began Sunday after 9 p.m., when Sacramento officers responded to a report that a man had broken vehicle windows and was hiding in a backyard.

Stephon Alonzo Clark, 22, died in a hail of police gunshots Sunday night in the darkened backyard of the home where he had been staying with his grandparents.

The incident occurred after police officers were called to the neighborhood Sunday to respond to a report of someone "breaking into cars".

More than five minutes after the final shot was sacked and Clark's motionless body lay on the ground, the same female officer says, "Let's have the next unit just bring a non-lethal in case he's pretending".

But Geoffrey Alpert, a professor of criminology at the University of SC and an expert on police use of force, said the officers may have a hard time explaining why they jumped to the conclusion that Mr Clark had a gun.

The officers asked each other if they were all right. "Stop! Stop!" an officer yells.

He "approached us hands out, and then fell down", said an officer.

African officials and experts also said there could still be challenges facing the operation of the AfCFTA. He stressed the importance of intra-African trade for Africa's economic development.

Shortly after the protest began, Sacramento Police told fans over Twitter that they would not be allowing anyone to enter the arena.

"An officer responded "... something in his hands.

In video recorded by two officers' body cameras and from the helicopter, police yelled, "Hey, show me your hands. Gun, gun, gun!" an officer shouts in one video before he and his partner fire repeatedly at a dark figure.

He praised the quick release of the helicopter and bodycam videos and said the police department had improved its policies since the fatal shooting of a mentally ill man in 2016. "We need to know if you're OK", she said, adding they could not help unless they knew he did not have a weapon.

Trump Criticized For Congratulating Putin On Sunday's Election Win
Trump "emphasized the importance of denuclearizing the Korean Peninsula", the White House added in a separate statement. Trump supposedly ignored the order and called Putin on his own, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday.

Sacramento police and the president of the Sacramento Police Officers Association could not be reached on Friday. Clark's family, through their attorney Benjamin Crump, disputed the police account that Clark was breaking windows.

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.

They chanted "Black lives matter" and called out Clark's name.

A department statement said that "prior to the shooting, the involved officers saw the suspect facing them, advance forward with his arms extended, and holding an object in his hands". City Councilman Larry Carr decried the loss of life and said police must provide timely information.
