SACRAMENTO, Calif. - The family of an unarmed man killed by Sacramento police last year has filed a wrongful death suit.

The suit is on behalf of Stephon Clark's two sons, his parents and his grandparents.

The suit asks for $20 million from the city and the two officers who opened fire. It says the officers used excessive force and that Clark was a victim of racial profiling.

Police say the officers thought Clark had a gun but they only found a cell phone.

Light scattered showers are on tap for the start of your Thursday, and I'm tracking heavier rain ahead from Thursday afternoon through mid day Friday. We'll have a lull in our wet pattern late Friday through early Saturday, but even heavier rain and snow will return this weekend and persist into next week. Major travel impacts will be possible across northern California from this wet weather.
