Stephon Clark, 22, was shot and killed by Sacramento Police officers in his grandmother's backyard on March 18 after officers responded to a 911 call that described a man in a hoodie breaking car windows and hiding in a backyard.

When the officers encountered Stephon Clark, according to body-cam footage, they believed he was in possession of a "toolbar." A responding officer said Clark motioned toward them, and one officer can be heard on the video yelling, "Show me your hands ... Gun, gun, gun."

The two officers fired 20 shots. Investigators later determined Clark had been holding only a cellphone. Both officers have since been placed on administrative leave.

Tensions in Sacramento have been high since the shooting, with protesters takings to the streets to demand change.
