Street protests have erupted in Sacramento, California after footage was released showing police officers fatally shooting a 22-year-old unarmed Black man 20 times.
On Thursday, protesters in Sacramento blocked Interstate 5 and later converged outside a downtown arena, preventing many fans from entering for a National Basketball Association game.
Most ticketholders weren't able to get inside, and the Sacramento Police said via Twitter that "no one else will be admitted to the #SacKings game". The Kings eventually made a decision to start playing even though many fans were blocked from entering, leaving the arena mostly empty during the game.
The officers arrived in the neighborhood at 9:13 p.m., the department said.
The recordings released by the department include the original 911 call about a man breaking vehicle windows that police had responded to Sunday night.
In subsequent reports, the police said the two officers had fired 20 shots at Clark, striking him numerous times, according to the Sacramento Bee. The officers believed the suspect was pointing a firearm at them.
After a few minutes, speaking to the still body, an officer shouts, "Hey, can you hear us?"
At least one protester was arrested for allegedly breaking a window on a commuter bus, FOX 40 reported.
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Community members and activists are gathering at Sacramento City Hall on Thursday to protest the fatal shooting of an unarmed black man by police. Sacramento police says officers receiving death threats after fatal shooting " It is indoctrinated into their bloodstream to fear us, but today we stand right now to tell you we are human beings and the United States of America - this is our country", said Reverand Brian Levingston of Destiny Church.
A sheriff's helicopter hovered, its spotlight sweeping over backyards, as it relayed information about the movement of the suspect, darting through yards and pausing to peer into a auto.
Police said officers believed he was holding a gun, but all they recovered at the scene was a cellphone.
"Show me your hands - gun!" one officer yells, according to the body camera footage released Wednesday.
"This family completely rejects anything that the Sacramento Police Department tried to claim to justify this execution of their loved one", said Benjamin Crump, the family's attorney.
Daniel Hahn, who is the first black police chief in Sacramento, told CNN affiliate KCRA that the shooting is "a tragic event for our entire community, so yes, there's a lot of anger". Police said the man "turned and advanced toward the officers while holding an object" extended in front of him.
Both the officers who killed Clark are now on a paid administrative leave.
Mayor Darrell Steinberg said in a statement that Clark's death warrants a thorough review of the incident and of Sacramento's law enforcement policies.
