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.
