The Sacramento Bee reported that protesters at the Golden 1 Center on Thursday night formed a human chain across the arena's doors chanting "Shut it Down!" 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.

On Sunday, March 18, 2018, at 9:13 p.m., officers from the Sacramento Police Department (SPD) were dispatched to the 7500 block of 29 Street regarding a subject breaking into vehicles.

The killing of Stephon Clark last Sunday night sparked community unrest after it was revealed Clark had been gunned down in his grandmother's backyard by two police officers who mistook the cellphone he was carrying for a weapon or burglary tool.

Clark was killed by police officers who were responding to a call about a man breaking auto windows on the 7500 block of 29th Street in South Sacramento. The officers then opened fire on Clark, firing a total of 20 rounds, Sacramento police said. "Stop! Stop!" officers could be heard shouting.

At other points, protesters surrounded Sacramento police officers and delayed public transportation.

"We are so very sorry for your loss", Ranadive said.

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

Attorney Ben Crump, who is representing the Clark family, condemned the officers' response to the complaint. As the officers run into a backyard, they turn a corner and spot Clark in the glare of their flashlights. According to the police department, Clark had approached them with an object in his hand, which they assumed was a gun.

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

"He just broke the window, running south, to the south", an officer said in the chopper video.

Sacramento police have released footage from body cameras and from a helicopter that recorded the chase and the fatal shooting of a young black man in his backyard over the weekend.

The department had said he advanced toward the officers holding an object extended in front of him. Sacramento's police chief is promising a thorough investigation.

But he added that there are disturbing aspects to parts of the video that require investigation, including a snippet where one officer appears to confirm after the shooting that Clark had obeyed their commands to show his hands.

Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn, the city's first black police chief, promised transparency and to work for better community relations since he took charge previous year. Police fired 20 shots at Clark. He said he's "livid" with the police right now.

The two officers involved in the shooting have not been named; both have been placed on paid administrative leave.
