HeadlineMay 02, 2018

Back in the United States, the Sacramento County Coroner’s Office has released an official autopsy for Stephon Clark, the 22-year-old African-American man who was shot by police officers 20 times in his grandmother’s backyard in March. This autopsy says he was shot three times in the back, which contradicts the independent autopsy carried out by a forensic pathologist hired by Stephon Clark’s family. That autopsy said he was shot six times in the back by police.
