Stephon Clark was shot EIGHT TIMES in the back or side, a private family autopsy has revealed.
The Sacramento police gunned down the unarmed Clark in his grandmother’s back yard.
While it has also revealed that he did not die instantly raising questions why he did not receive treatment.
It is estimated he died within three to ten minutes of being hit multiple times.
He was shot at more than 20 times by officers responding to a vandalism report in the area last week.
And at least eight of those bullets struck Mr. Clark, according to an analysis by Dr. Bennet Omalu, a private medical examiner who the family’s lawyer hired to conduct an independent autopsy.
According to Dr. Omalu, Mr. Clark, 22, was shot four times in the lower part of his back, twice in his neck, and once under an armpit.
He was also shot in the leg. One of the neck wounds was from the side, the doctor revealed.
“You could reasonably conclude that he received seven gunshot wounds from his back,” Dr. Omalu revealed at a news conference on Friday.
He added that each of those seven shots could have had a “fatal capacity” and described severe damage to Mr. Clark’s body, including a shattered vertebrae and a collapsed lung.
The family lawyer added: “This independent autopsy affirms that Stephon was not a threat to police and was slain in another senseless police killing under increasingly questionable circumstances.”
Since the shooting there have been several protests around the country sparking fears of rioting over the Easter weekend holiday.
Almost a dozen people were arrested in Manhattan, New York, during a march from Columbus Circle to Times Square.
Meanwhile, there have also been reports of vandalism in Sacramento after the shooting with other protests in several cities.
