Sequita Thompson, the grandmother of a man killed last week by Sacramento, Calif., police, lamented her loss and called for police reforms Monday. Stephon Clark, 22, was unarmed in Thompson’s backyard on March 18 when police in pursuit of a fleeing vandalism suspect came upon him. Thinking he had a gun, they shot at him 20 times. He had only a cellphone in his possession. Members of the Sacramento Kings and Boston Celtics on Sunday wore black warmup shirts with Clark’s name on them before their NBA game in Sacramento.
