THEIR LIVES. THE FIRE ENGULFED THE MALL WHILE IT WAS PACKED WITH PARENTS AND THEIR CHILDREN ON THE FIRST WEEKEND OF THE SCHOOL RECESS. INVESTIGATORS IDENTIFIED A SHORT CIRCUIT AS A POSSIBLE CAUSE AND SAID THE EMERGENCY EXITS WERE LOCKED SHUT, HAMPERING AN EVACUATION. TODAY IS A DAY OF MOURNING IN RUSSIA, WITH THE FIRST FUNERALS TAKING PLACE THIS MORNING. IN NEWS ACROSS AMERICA, ANGER OVER THE DEADLY POLICE SHOOTING OF AN UNARMED BLACK MAN IN SACRAMENTO IS INTENSIFYING. HUNDREDS OF PROTESTERS BLOCKED FANS FROM ENTERING A SACRAMENTO KINGS BASKETBALL GAME LAST NIGHT. THEY ALSO TEMPORARILY SHUT DOWN A PUBLIC MEETING WITH CITY LEADERS. IT WAS HELD TO DISCUSS STEPHON CLARK’S DEATH 10 DAYS AGO. CBS4’S JOHN BLACKSTONE REPORTS. Reporter: STEVANTE CLARK LED PROTESTERS IN A CHANT OF HIS BROTHER, STEPHON CLARK’S NAME, JUST MINUTES INTO THE SACRAMENTO CITY COUNCIL MEETING ABOUT THE SHOOTING DEATH ON MARCH 18th. LIKE MANY HERE, HE CALLED FOR AN END TO POLICE VIOLENCE. STEPHON CLARK WAS SHOT AT 20 TIMES IN HIS GRANDMOTHER’S BACKYARD AFTER POLICE MISTOOK THE CELL PHONE HE WAS HOLDING FOR A GUN. DOES THIS LOOK, AS YOU POINT THIS TO OUR COUNSEL — DOES THIS LOOK LIKE A GUN? Reporter: THE MEETING’S OVERFLOW CROWD MARCHED TO THE NBA ARENA WHERE THE SACRAMENTO KINGS WERE PLAYING. THEY BLOCKED ALL ENTRANCES FOR THE SECOND TIME IN LESS THAN A WEEK. I FEEL POWERFUL. I FEEL LIKE WE ARE DOING SOMETHING POSITIVE IN THE COMMUNITY. Reporter: THE SACRAMENTO POLICE CHIEF SAYS HIS DEPARTMENT IS CONTINUING ITS OWN INVESTIGATION INTO THE SHOOTING, AND LOOKING INTO WHETHER OFFICERS ACTED IMPROPERLY WHEN THEY MUTED THE AUDIO ON THEIR BODY CAMS SHORTLY AFTER SHOOTING CLARK. HE SAYS THE DEPARTMENT DOES HAVE A POLICY WHERE OFFICERS ARE ALLOWED TO MUTE THEIR CAMERAS IN CERTAIN SITUATIONS. STILL — REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THEY WERE WITHIN POLICY OR NOT, IF YOU ARE ALREADY SOMEBODY IN THE COMMUNITY THAT DID NOT TRUST THE POLICE DEPARTMENT, YOU ARE PROBABLY GOING TO THINK THERE IS SOMETHING SHADY ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING. THAT HURTS US. RIGHT OR WRONG, MUTING DID NOT HELP THE SITUATION. CORRECT.
