A 22-year-old California man was killed by cops in his own backyard over the weekend.
Since the shooting death of Stephon Clark on Sunday night, there have been a number of conflicting reports on what he was carrying at the time of the fatal shooting. Sacramento police said they initially believed Clark was carrying a firearm. They later alleged the object was a “tool bar” that he reportedly “extended in front of him” while walking toward the officers. Officers claim they were responding to reports of a person breaking windows in the area.

However, the Sacramento Police Department has now confirmed that Clark was carrying a cell phone according to The Sacramento Bee. The cell phone was the only object found near his body.

“He didn’t have a … gun,” exclaimed Mase Tremaine, who knew Clark for about three years. “Why are you going to shoot somebody multiple times?”

According to FOX Sacramento, the BLM(Black Lives Matter) chapter is set to launch a “Copwatch” program so that more people are trained to record similar police shootings and police brutality incidents on video.
