    Saying Clark advanced toward them would be more accurate than saying he charged at them. JMO

    Clark's family last month filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the officers involved and the city of Sacramento.

    The federal lawsuit alleges the young man was racially profiled, and the officers used excessive force in the shooting incident. The two officers failed to identify themselves or issue a verbal warning before firing approximately 20 shots, the suit said. The lawsuit also alleges the officers did not get him medical attention immediately after the shooting.

    The California Attorney General's Office has said it is also conducting an independent investigation.

    No charges for Sacramento officers who fatally shot Stephon Clark
