Sacramento police released helicopter footage showing the scene where two officers fatally shot 23-year-old Stephon Clark on March 19

Video shot by a legal observer shows marchers filtering past and between a pair of SCSD vehicles as one of the drivers tells them to back away from his auto via loudspeaker.

The incident capped a week of protest marches and demonstrations over the police shooting of Clark that has drawn national media attention.

The Clark family attorney, celebrated civil rights lawyer Benjamin Crump, said the examination showed no entry wounds in the front of his body, demonstrating that the 22-year-old could not have been a threat to police.

The injured protester, local activist Wanda Cleveland, was released from the hospital early Sunday morning with minor bruises to her arm and the back of her head, the Sacramento Bee reported.

Stephon Clark died after being shot 8 times-with 7 bullets striking him in the back-according to an independent autopsy report by a medical examiner hired by his family.


"During the incident, the Sheriff's Department vehicle sustained scratches, dents, and a shattered rear window", the press release said.

Clark was killed March 18 by two police officers responding to a call of someone breaking into auto windows. "The collision occurred while the patrol vehicle was traveling at slow speeds". "If I did that I'd be charged".

"The damage to the vehicle was not a result of the collision involving the pedestrian but was caused by vandals in the crowd", Hampton said. California Highway Patrol is investigating the incident.

A department helicopter assisted officers on the night Clark was killed.

The New York Times notes that the officers who were driving both vehicles have been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation.


The findings by pathologist Dr. Bennet Omalu counter the department's narrative that Clark was approaching the officers when he was killed.

Clark's death has sparked days of protests and calls for police reform.

Omalu said in a statement he found "four entry wounds in the lower part of Stephon's back; one in the side of his neck, with an exit wound elsewhere in his neck; one in the back of his neck; one under an armpit entering from the side, with an exit wound on the other side of his body; and one in the outside of a leg".

Police have said he was moving toward officers in a menacing way. They then handcuffed him before appearing to attempt resuscitation.

Clark was shot in his grandmother's backyard as police were searching for a vandal in the neighborhood who was breaking vehicle windows.
