One of the two officers who shot and killed Stephon Clark was confronted by Black Lives Matter protesters on his wedding day.
Sacramento police have not released the names of the two officers who opened fire on Clark on March 18 due to safety concerns. CBS13 has blurred the faces of the newly released video to protect their identities.
The small group of protesters had gotten word about the wedding and made sure they were there just hours before the officer apparently said I do.

Now the confrontation is shedding light on what these officers are up against both in and out of uniform and begs the question, is this going too far?
“I think they need to be approached in spaces where they’re a little more vulnerable,” said Sacramento BLM founder Tanya Faison.
According to the video released by Black Lives Matter, the officer was gathered in a room with his groomsmen Saturday when protesters barged in.
“I just wonder if you started planning your wedding before you killed Stephon Clark or after? How have you been sleeping since March 18?” said one protester in the video.
BLM says they helped plan the confrontation ever since they found the officer’s wedding website online, with information about the venue, a vineyard about an hour outside of Sacramento.
