Feds to Investigate Whether Stephon Clark's Rights Were Violated

United States Department of Justice seal

There will be a federal investigation into whether the March 18, 2018 shooting death of Stephon Clark by two Sacramento Police officers deprived Clark of his civil rights. The U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California, the FBI and the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice will cooperate in the probe, which follows separate investigations and rulings by Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra that there are no grounds for criminal charges against the officers.

A statement from U.S. Attorney McGregor W. Scott and Special Agent in Charge Sean Ragan of the FBI’s Sacramento Field Office says their examination will involve a review of the substance and results of the state and local investigations, and any additional investigative steps, if warranted.
