At a vigil for Stephon Clark on Saturday March 31, 2018 at approximately 9pm a local activist was run down by a Sacramento Sheriff SUV. The protester has been rushed to the local trauma center for treatment.
As of 11pm protesters are still gathering. Black Lives Matter Sacramento is encouraging people to show up to the intersection of Florin and 65th Street.
The victim has been positively identified as a well known and befriended local activist, a white female between the ages of 50-60. Details of her current condition are yet unknown but friends of the victim have confirmed her identity.
The SUV made no attempt to stop after the incident.
This comes barely 24 hours after the Clark family released the results of a private autopsy they commissioned for Stephon. The autopsy revealed that Stephon had been hit 8 times out of the 20 shots which Officers Terrence Mercadal and Jared Robinet had fired. 6 of the 8 shots hit Stephon Clark in the back.
A picture of the plates on the SUV were taken and video of the incident went viral within minutes.
This marks the second straight week of protests where the City of Sacramento has demanded justice for Stephon Clark.
