Don Clark Sr., 63, was shot and killed by police in St. Louis, Missouri.
In February 2017 police broke down his door and entered his home without identifying themselves as law enforcement. Officers then detonated a device that emitted a loud sound and flash to disorient Clark. He was shot at least nine times.
Clark was unarmed. He had diabetes, walked with a cane and had poor eyesight and hearing, so he could not pose a threat to the officers. Police said were serving a search warrant and found weapons and drugs in his home. Clark’s family said he did not have weapons and drugs and was not involved in any illegal activities.
In June 2021, Clark’s family filed a lawsuit against the city and the police department, accusing them of killing an innocent person.
MASS MEDIA ABOUT THE CASE:
