California police shoot unarmed black man 20 times in his grandparents’ backyard

Police in Sacramento fatally fired at an unarmed black man 20 times after mistaking his mobile phone for a weapon.

Two officers shouted for a suspect to show his hands and then yelled “gun, gun, gun” moments before shooting him dead, audio from body camera footage released by Sacramento police shows.

Footage from the body cameras and an overhead helicopter does not clearly illustrate what the man, who was only holding a mobile phone, was doing in the moments before the police aimed at him on Sunday night.
