Anger mounts in US over police shooting of unarmed black man

The killing of 22-year-old Stephon Clark was captured on police body cameras, but shortly after shooting, the audio was deliberately muted and Clark's family and friends want to know why.

    Anger is mounting in the US city of Sacramento over the police shooting of an unarmed black man last week.

    22-year-old Stephon Clark was shot at least 20 times when officers cornered him in his grandmother's backyard.

    Police say they believed he had a gun.
