In Sacramento, crowds have been gathering almost daily to demand justice for Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man fatally shot by police in his grandmother's backyard on March 18. Protesters have disrupted a city council meeting, blocked a freeway and roads downtown and repeatedly blocked fans from entering the arena for Kings NBA games. The officers who shot the 22-year-old Clark said they shot at him 20 times because they believed he was armed, though he was holding only a cellphone.
