Transcript for Outrage after no charges in Stephon Clark shooting
Thank you, will. We're going to turn now to the outrage that is growing in California after prosecutors announced the officers who fatally shot an unarmed black man last year will not face criminal charge. Stephon Clark's family is asking the state's attorney general to take action. Our chief national correspondent Matt Gutman is in Los Angeles with the latest. Good morning, Matt.
