Stephon Clark, a father of two, was shot and killed in Sacramento CA, by two officers with the Sacramento PD. This all took place in the backyard of his grandmother’s house while he had a phone in his hand. He was on probation for domestic dispute at the time.
2 days prior, Clark had been in a physical domestic dispute with Salena Manni, the mother of his 2 children, and was trying to call her. Manni had sent texts telling him that he would be sent back to prison for the domestic incident and that he would not see his children for a long time. Clark also texted other ex-girlfriends seeking drugs, as well as texting Manni that he was going to commit suicide. An examination of his internet search history also showed that he had been researching websites about suicide.
