The mother of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man killed by police in Sacramento, California, said Saturday she was "outraged" the officers would not be charged and vowed to continue fighting for justice.
The big picture: The police officers' shooting of Clark 8 times in Sacramento on March 18, 2018, triggered protests and was highlighted in national campaigns raising concern about the use of force by police. Protesters gathered Saturday outside police headquarters in the state capital after it was announced the officers would face "no criminal liability," CNN reports. The officers said they believed Clark had pointed a gun at them after seeing a flash of light. A phone was found beneath his body.
