A sheriff’s vehicle hits activist Wanda Cleveland during Stephon Clark protests in Sacramento on Saturday, the Sacramento Bee reports. Witnesses attending the vigil say a Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department vehicle lurched forward and hit Cleveland as it made its way through the crowds. The vehicle then left the scene after she was knocked to the curb. Cleveland, who sustained minor injuries, was released from a local hospital after midnight.
Cleveland told the Sacramento Bee that the officer “never even stopped. It was a hit-and-run. If I did that I’d be charged.”
Clark was killed by Sacramento police as he stood in his grandparents’ backyard. He was unarmed and holding a cellphone, when he was shot from behind, with six bullets hitting him in the back.
