BROTHER OF UNARMED BLACK MAN SHOT 20 TIMES ERUPTS AT CITY COUNCIL MEETING













The brother of an unarmed black man killed by Sacramento police interrupted a Sacramento City Council meeting by jumping on the desk in front of the mayor and chanting his brother Stephon Clark’s name.
Stevante Clark marched into the Tuesday meeting, jumped on the dais and danced around.
He demanded to speak and said he didn’t think the council would make meaningful changes as a result of his brother’s death.


The council adjourned for roughly 15 minutes as a result of the disruption.
Twenty-two-year-old Stephon Clark was fatally shot by police March 18 in his grandmother’s back yard. Officers said they initially thought he had a gun. He was holding a cellphone.
