In a video provided to CBS 13, Black Lives Matter protesters can be seen crashing the wedding of one of the police officerswho was involved in the shooting of unarmed 22-year-old black man Stephon Clark earlier this year.
On March 18, 2018, Clark was shot by two police officers responding to reports of vandalism as a police department helicopter hovered overhead. Police at the time said they believed Clark was armed at the time, but investigators later determined he had his cell phone in his hand and not a weapon.
According to the report, although police authorities have so far not released the names of the two police officers who fired ten shots that killed Clark as he hid from them in his grandmother's backyard, activists have been able to discover their identities and have been keeping a watch on them -- including searching for them online.
“I think they need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable,” said Sacramento BLM founder Tanya Faison, of the video that showed the group bursting into a room where the accused officer was meeting with his groomsmen on Saturday.
“I just wonder if you started planning your wedding before you killed Stephon Clark or after? How have you been sleeping since March 18?” said one protester in the video, as another one shouted, "You're a murderer!"
According to CBS13, they pixelated the faces of many in the wedding party to protect their identities.
“Stephon Clark’s family is still mourning and suffering. He doesn’t get to be with his kids, or get married,” Faison told CBS 13.
According to the Sacramento Police Department, the investigation into shooting is still ongoing.
"People may think that these officers are just going about their lives, but this is a very traumatic event for everyone,” said Sgt. Vance Chandler.
