About 150 people staged a vigil and protest in honor of Clark, who was unarmed at the time of the March 18 shooting by Sacramento police, outside a sheriff's department office in South Sacramento.

Omalu, who conducted the autopsy on Tuesday, further concluded that Clark's death was caused by a combination of blood loss, acute respiratory arrest and hypoxia, or a lack of oxygen reaching the brain. Omalu told a news conference Friday that Clark was shot in the right back side of the neck and had a cluster of wounds in the upper right side of his back.

With a joyous but somber feel, the event marked a change in tone from the protests that have disrupted the capital city's downtown.

"Generally speaking, part of the outrage in the community is not only for this shooting but it's for all police shootings that are happening of unarmed people", said Dale Galipo, another Clark family lawyer. The officers' body camera microphones were shut off after the shooting. Russian President Vladimir Putin flew to the city to offer his condolences. Officers opened fire at Clark, believing he was armed with a gun. "The person who stood by and let him be out of control was Howie Lake".

The Kings and their owner have been supportive of the Clark family.

Omalu said that Clark, who did not immediately receive medical treatment, died three to ten minutes later.

"Gun, gun, gun", one of the officers yells on body camera video before they begin shooting.

"You could reasonably conclude that he received seven gunshot wounds from his back", Omalu said.

The results of the independent autopsy come just one day after Clark's funeral, which was attended by the Rev. Al Sharpton. Police also said they thought he was holding a gun. And the North Korean leader reportedly talked about getting rid of his country's nukes with Chinese President Xi Jinping. It was led by retired National Basketball Association player Matt Barnes, who grew up in the area and had two stints with the Sacramento Kings franchise. He was also shot in the thigh.

The night before, several hundred protesters marched through downtown streets for nearly four hours, with Black Lives Matter Sacramento leaders diffusing tensions on several occasions to keep the march peaceful.

Sanders went on to add: "The president is very supportive of law enforcement".

NBC Bay Area reported that the protests have been costly for the already struggling Kings. Players from both teams wore T-shirts during warmups in Clark's honour.

And in addition to the offer to expense Clark's funeral, former player Barnes is hosting a rally Saturday to protest Clark's killing. Authorities have not yet commented on whether they told the Clark family they believed Clark had a crowbar.

A doctor acting on behalf of Stephon Clark's family has revealed his findings after performing a private autopsy on the deceased body. He points a gun at his Sterling's head and shouts he will shoot him if he moves. "They're not being violent, they're asking for you to stop being violent to them". "It's probably goodbye." In all, 64 people - 41 of them children - perished Sunday in the blaze at a shopping mall in Siberia.

Clark's brother, Stevante, crashed a meeting of the Sacramento City Council earlier this week, telling the room that the "chief of police got my brother killed" and proclaiming, "We're not immigrants, we're sons of slaves". His partner then joined in the shooting. I mean, they shot him 20 times. Each of those bullets possessed "a fatal capacity". "We are proud of them for standing up for justice".

The young man clung to life for three to 10 minutes after bullets shattered bone, severed blood vessels, injured his aorta and lodged in his spine, according to the family's autopsy.
