A video was released by police showing officers firing 20 gunshots at Stephon Clark, 22, on Sunday night (March 18). He was holding an object that was later found to be a cell phone.
Several hundred demonstrators took to the streets in a protest organized by the Black Lives Matter movement.
A group marched up an entrance ramp to an interstate highway at the height of rush hour and blocked traffic. Later, protesters blocked the entrance to the Golden 1 Center, preventing fans from entering to see a basketball game between the Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks.
