Dramatic photos from the Stephon Clark protests in East Sacramento

What began as a relatively quiet Stephon Clark protest outside a Trader Joe’s supermarket in East Sacramento ended in arrests on Monday night, as more than 100 riot police arrested 84 protesters and detained a Sacramento Bee reporter Monday night.

About 100 protesters, organized through The Table Sacramento, started marching shortly before 7 p.m. in opposition to Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert’s decision not to charge the police officers who shot and killed Clark in his grandparents’ backyard last March. Clark, 22, had been holding a cell phone police thought was a gun. Read a timeline of events here.
