[ gunfire ]. >> earlier today, he was laid to rest. >> i am. >> stephon clark. >> i am. >> stephon clark. >> the reverend al sharpton delivering a fiery eulogy.

infrared video tracking clark. on the ground shaky body cam pick up the frantic pursuit. as they close in one of the officers shouts "gun" seconds later both officers open fire shooting 20 times. [ gunfire ]. >> leaving stephon clark dead, an iphone not a weapon, by his side. >> why he got shot so many times, he was -- >> they could have set up a parameter, could have given him command of orders and allowed him to comply with those orderers. they could have done so many things to deescalate the situation. >> abc news correspondent and i watched together. >> they did give him opportunity to show his hands. talking about probably a dark object. doesn't have to be ab actual gun, it only has to be that the
police officer perceives the threat. >> when he yells, gun, gun, gun could be their strongest defense. >> yes he perceived it was a gun giving him the license to fire. >> once again the law says as long as an officer reasonably believes he or she is in danger deadly force is justifiable. >> would an officer acting in the same circumstance consider this a reasonable action based on the facts as the officers knew them. >> following the shooting the officers also muted their body camera. >> that one faktd can be very egregious to determine whether or not the officers keep their jobs. >> the family believes that something nefarious was going on at that time. they believe that's when they started to conspire to try to cover this up. >> running south. >> sacramento police say the officers in the helicopter witness clark break i glass door
before telling the units to move in and released this statement -- >> the two officers who shot clark have a combined six years on the job with the sacramento police department. before that they each had four years guys other departments. both officers are now on paid administrative leave. >> do you think these officers are going to find them selves in a court of law facing charges? >> i don't think so. just looking at this, the legal standard is whether or not the force was justified. i just can't imagine that even an external investigation is going to determine that this shooting was unjustified. we need more training because
this young man, a father of two, shouldn't be dead. he had no weapon. >> clark had been staying at his grandmother's home on the night he was killed. he had two felony counts of domestic abuse to which he pled guilty and agreed to under go treatment. also had other charges including robbery. pleaded no contest and year on work project to satisfy his jail term. >> these officers no nothing on the scene, it only matters the officers knew at the time they are pursuing the s the s >> as to accusation of racism it is not clear if he was african-american? >> is he black, white, asian? >> he had a hoodie on, i couldn't tell. >> the fact the young man was running does he not have some justification in being afraid of the police. >> maybe he's afraid of the police. >> that he was running doesn't
mean he's guilty of anything. >> no it doesn't. that's what i think is so difficult about the scene we see over and over again. there are young black men that are simply afraid of the police because young black men statistically are killed unproportionately compared to the rest of the population. >> the family has been vocal in their outrage. >> why not shoot them in the arm, the leg, a taser, why? >> stephon clark, stephon clark, stephon clark! >> tuesday at a city hall meeting clark's older brother interrupted the meeting angrily confronting the mayor. he apologized the next day. >> let's step away from this where are we as a country now we have an accumulation of cases like this. >> there is this fundamental
distrust between the police and the communities they police. when you have the community that's being pleased so afraid of possibly being killed by the neighborhood police officer it's a recipe for disaster. >> the white house is calling it a local matter. >> this is something that is a local matter and something we feel should be left up to the local authorities. the president is very supportive of law enforcement, but at the same time in these specific cases and specific incidents those will be left up to local authorities to make that determination and not something for the federal government to weigh into. >> the president's press secretary said this is a local matter, no, this is not a local matter. they've been killing young, black men all over the country. >> the shooting has reignited the kind of protests against police killing that's spread over the last several years in
