More than 80 arrested at Stephon Clark protest in Sacramento

SACRAMENTO (KRON) -- More than 80 people were arrested Monday night at a protest in East Sacramento -- a protest related to the recent decision not to charge the officers involved in the shooting death of Stephon Clark. 

Sacramento Police Captain Norm Leong said via Twitter Monday night that the agency was making arrests after cars were damaged during the protest. 

One of those arrested was a Sacramento Bee reporter, according to the newspaper. It's unclear what led up to the reporter's arrest.

Tonight's protest comes just two days following the Sacramento District Attorney's decision to not charge the two police officers involved in the shooting death of Clark. 

Clark was shot several times by officers while in his grandmother's backyard.
