>> Tensions between protestors and police flaring in Sacramento over the weekend after a sheriff's patrol car struck a demonstrator.>> My God.>> The woman identified as 61 year old Wanda Cleveland, who was protesting death of Stephon Clark, an unarmed black man recently gunned down by police. Authorities on Sunday said she sustained minor injuries and has been released from the hospital.
A statement released by the Sacramento Sheriff's department said the car was traveling at slow speeds and had been damaged by people in the crowd. The incident is under investigation. Protests have intensified after an independent autopsy commissioned by Clark's family showed most of the eight bullets that hit Clark struck him in the back, refuting police accounts that Clark was moving toward officers in a threatening way when they fired.
Clark was killed on March 18th, when two Sacramento police officers responding to complaints of someone breaking car windows chased him into his grandmother's backyard where they fired 20 shots. The officers said they feared Clark had a gun, but no weapon was found on Clark's body. Only his cellphone.
