Sacramento To Pay $1.7 Million To Parents Of Stephon Clark, Unarmed Man Killed By Cops

The city of Sacramento, California, will pay $1.7 million in a settlement with the parents of Stephon Clark, who was fatally shot by police in 2018.

Two Sacramento police officers fired 20 shots at 22-year-old Clark, striking him seven times after chasing him to the backyard of his grandmother’s home. The officers later said they believed Clark was holding a gun. It was a cellphone.

“Everyone wishes this heartbreaking event had not occurred,” Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said in a statement. “A family lost a son, a grandson, a brother and a father.”
