Protesters seeking justice for Stephon Clark who was fatally shot by police in his backyard have shut down the Golden 1 Center Tuesday evening. The group started by chanting outside a special city council meeting and moved to block fans from attending the Sacramento Kings game.

Hundreds of protesters gathered outside the area prompting the entrance to be temporarily shut down by organizers. "Public safety measures have been enacted and arena entrances are temporarily closed. Stand-by for further instructions as we coordinate safe entry to the building. We apologize for the inconvenience," The Sacramento Kings said on Twitter.

The protesters chanted "Say his name" in response to the shooting of Stephon Clark who was unarmed in his backyard when he was killed by police seeking a burglary suspect. The protests resulted in officers on bikes creating a barrier between protesters and Kings fans.

Sacramento Kings owner Vivek Ranadivé offered a statement to fans attending the game, "On behalf of the players, executives, ownership, and the entire Kings family — first of all, we wanted to express our deepest sympathies to the family. What happened was absolutely horrific, and we are so very sorry, so very sorry for your loss."

The Sacremento Kings and Boston Celtics wore shirts that said, "Accountability. We are," on the front and "#StephonClark" on the back. They also shared a video on social media that said, "We will not stick to sports," and "This is bigger than basketball."

Somebody should shoot his obnoxious nigger brother for jumping around like a monkey during the city meeting. I'm sick of these disgusting violent apes looking for an excuse to chimp out, loot, rape, steal, kill, rape again, rob, and beat up people.
