Sacramento Police Release More Video from Stephon Clark Shooting

 SACRAMENTO -- The Sacramento Police Department released 51 new pieces of video and two audio files of 911 calls the night Stephon Clark was shot by officers.

Twenty-three dash camera videos and 28 body camera videos were made public Monday. That is approximately 697 minutes of video.

The footage shows what dozens of police and other emergency workers did after two Sacramento Police officers fatally shot Clark.

Police were in the area investigating reports of someone breaking car windows when officers encountered Clark in the backyard of his grandmother's home. Officers say they believed Clark was armed and fired at him 20 times. Clark was struck seven times, mostly in the back, according to an independent autopsy.

Clark's death reignited a national debate on policing and communities of color.

"That’s part of our commitment to being transparent in our community," said Sacramento Police Sgt. Vance Chandler.

Chandler said it’s important for the public to see how much evidence they have to process and how complicated investigating an officer-involved shooting really is.

The videos show that from the first moment a backup officer arrived until the time he started chest compressions on Clark five minutes elapsed. That is around the same amount of time an independent autopsy revealed it may have taken Clark to die.

But first Clark was handcuffed.

"This one we will look at what the officers did in terms of rendering aid and determine if it was appropriate for the given circumstances," Chandler said.

The videos also show officers interviewing neighbors.

"Somebody busted a big hole in my sliding door... " said one resident in a video.

Police originally said Clark possibly shattered a neighbor’s sliding door with a "toolbar." Of course, now it's known that Clark had only a cell phone and was not armed.

"He didn't have a gun did he?" says one officer as heard from his body camera.

This tremendous amount of video may help bring clarity but will also surely generate more questions, including what officers were saying to each other when some of them muted their cameras.

"All of the muting we will look at," Chandler told FOX40.

Ben Crump, the attorney representing Clark's family sent a statement to FOX40"

“From the beginning, the tragic shooting of Stephon Clark has been shrouded in confusion and misinformation. The actions of the Sacramento Police Department – before and after the shooting – have left us all suspicious. Today those suspicions were confirmed. This latest horrifying video evidence further proves the reckless, irresponsible, and deadly behavior of the police officers involved. Though nothing can bring Stephon back to his family, we will not rest until we see those responsible held accountable and clear action taken to prevent tragedies like this from occurring in the future.”
