Autopsy Of Unarmed Shooting Victim Stephon Clark Tells Upsetting Story

By Jonna Ivin-Patton

The story of Stephon Clark is a tragedy. Now we know more on the suffering he endured. The young father of two was unarmed when he was shot at by two Sacramento Police Department officers over twenty times. An independent autopsy shows that eight of those bullets hit Clark and that he didn't die immediately.

Dr. Bennet Omalu conducted the autopsy concluding six of the shots hit Clark in the back, one entered his side and one bullet struck him in the leg. Omalu said of his finding:

 You could reasonably conclude that he received seven gunshot wounds from his back.
 Death took three to 10 minutes. It was not an instantaneous death. 

Stevante Clark, Stephon's brother, who, earlier in the week, led a protest interrupting a meeting of Sacramento's City Council in protest of his brother's death, wanted people to know who his brother was:

I want people to know all he cared about ― more than anything else in life ― was his children. His children meant most to him.
