Stephon Clark

The family of Stephon Clark, an unarmed 22-year-old Black man who was shot dead in his grandmother’s yard by Sacramento police has retained the noted civil rights attorney Ben Crump.

Clark was shot dead in his grandmother’s yard by Sacramento police on Sunday. Officers who were responding to a 911 call about a man tampering with vehicles saw and approached Clark, then shot 20 times.

“The shooting death of Stephon Clark is an all-too-common tragedy," Crump told The Black Star News. "It is yet another troubling example of a young, unarmed Black man being shot by police under highly questionable circumstances. From what we have seen so far, Sacramento law enforcement’s actions both before and after the shooting have raised more questions than provided answers. All of us who are committed to social justice are demanding full transparency and answers as to how these tragic events unfolded.”

Clark was the father of two young children and frequently stayed at his grandparents’ home.
