SACRAMENTO, Calif. -The Sacramento Police Department has turned over its investigation into the Shephon Clark shooting to the District Attorney.

The shooting happened on March 18 when officers shot and killed an unarmed man.

Police shot Clark seven times when they saw him holding a cell phone that they thought could be a weapon. 

The incident sparked outrage and protests near the state capitol by demonstrators that argued police officers are biased against people of color. 

"It's important for everyone to know that an investigation like this is very lengthy and there are a lot of details that investigators need to process," said Sargeant Vance Chandler of the Sacramento Police Department. 

Since Clark's death, the Sacramento Police Department has changed its foot pursuit and body camera policies

The officers who fired weapons in the deadly incident are still on duty.
