*As the Sacramento City Council held a meeting Tuesday to accommodate residents wanting to discuss the shooting death of unarmed black man Stephon Clark by police, Clark’s brother, Stevante Clark, jumped on the dais and demanded to speak, saying he didn’t think the council would make meaningful changes as a result of his brother’s death.

Stephon Clark, 22, was fatally shot by police March 18 in his grandmother’s backyard. Officers said they initially thought he had a gun, but it turned out to be a cellphone.

Watch Stevante storm into the meeting and demand to speak below:

Simultaneously, protesters outside of City Hall forced their way into the atrium as metal detectors fell down. They eventually made their way to Golden 1 Center, blocking the entrances to the arena, where the Sacramento Kings were scheduled to play the Dallas Mavericks.

The Kings released a statement saying the game would be delayed and the arena entrances were “temporarily closed.”

“Stand-by for further instructions as we coordinate safe entry to the building. We apologize for the inconvenience,” the statement said.

The game started several minutes after the scheduled time… but the 17,600-seat arena was sparsely populated, according to USA Today.

Earlier Tuesday, the California attorney general’s office said it is joining an investigation into the fatal shooting to provide independent oversight. Sacramento Police Chief Daniel Hahn announced the partnership Tuesday alongside Attorney General Xavier Becerra. He said he hopes it will build “faith and confidence” in the investigation.

Stephon Clark’s family said they doubt a proper investigation will be conducted– even with the state attorney general involved.

On Monday, Stephon Clark’s grandmother, Sequita Thompson, called for the police to change how they apply force in such situations and to consider non-lethal options. She also described in details the terror of hearing gunshots outside her house as she and her 7-year-old granddaughter slept inside.

Family attorney Benjamin Crump, to Thompson’s left in the video above, said in a statement: “We fully expect that the attorney general’s office will do a complete and thorough investigation that is fair and impartial – and that extends due process not just to those being investigated, but equally to the family of Stephon Clark.”
