6:40 p.m. UPDATE: Protesters have taken to the streets of Sacramento, leaving City Hall and heading to the Sacramento Kings game.

Protesters on Thursday were able to block the entrances to the Golden 1 Center, resulting in a smaller crowd inside for the Sacramento Kings game. Team owner Vivek Ranadive spoke in favor of the protests after the game.

The Kings played the Boston Celtics on Sunday, with both teams donning shirts honoring Stephon Clark.

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — The brother of Stephon Clark interrupted a forum for the community to discuss the shooting that has rocked Sacramento for the last week.

Stevonte Clark marched into the Sacramento City Council chambers on Tuesday about 15 minutes into the community forum and promptly took a seat on the dais in front of Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg.

The livestream of the City Council meeting that’s expected to run until 11 p.m. can be seen below.

The Sacramento City Council moved most of its regularly scheduled meeting to an earlier time to free up the evening for a community discussion about the death of Stephon Clark.

Clark was shot and killed by Sacramento Police officers in his grandmother’s backyard on March 18. Helicopter video and body camera video from the scene of the shooting showed officers pursuing Clark, then opening fire. Before firing shots, one of the officers immediately yelled “gun!” and opened fire five seconds later. They had fired an estimated 20 rounds at Clark.

Sacramento Police initially said that “gun” that the officers in the video reported seeing was a “toolbar” but no gun or “toolbar” was found at the scene, just Clark’s cellphone.
