Protests For Stephon Clark Delays Sacramento Kings Game, About 100 Fans Attending

Thursday night’s game between the Sacramento Kings and the Atlanta Hawks was delayed after a mass protest demanding justice for Stephon Clark, who was fatally shot by the police last week.

An unarmed Clark was reportedly shot 20 times in the backyard of the south Sacramento home he shared with his grandparents and some of his siblings on Sunday. Authorities mistook his cell phone for a weapon after they arrived at the scene following a call about a man breaking car windows. The 22-year-old was a stay-at-home father of two young sons, aged one and three.

A massive crowd shut down the freeway and surrounding streets to the Golden 1 Center on Thursday night as protesters locked arms and held signs outside the arena resulting in fans being unable to enter.
