In a devastating announcement, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert said she will not charge officers involved in the killing of unarmed Stephon Clark.

Schubert told media Saturday her office would not bring criminal charges against officers in the March 2018 shooting of Clark, reports The New York Times. 

Officers were responding to a call claiming a man was breaking car windows when they came upon Clark in the Sacramento neighborhood of Meadowview. Schubert went through a lengthy list of details stating Clark jumped fences and entered other residents' yards. According to CNN, he reportedly vandalized three cars and broke the sliding door of an elderly man's room.

Responding officers went into the backyard of his grandmother's home and within minutes fired 20 shots at the father of two. About eight shots entered his body through his back. Officers claimed he had a gun at the time of the shooting, but no weapon was found. It was later confirmed Clark was unarmed with only a cell phone in his possession. 

"Was a crime committed? There's no question that a human being died," Schubert said in Saturday's press conference. "But when we look at the facts and the law, and we follow our ethical responsibilities, the answer to that question is no." 

In an attempt to support the officers involved, Schubert said that helicopter video "conclusively shows that Mr. Clark was, in fact, advancing on the officers" before the shooting.

NBC News reports Schubert's recollection of events regarding the shooting mentioned a domestic violence call two days before the shooting. She also went on at length about Clark's toxicology report showing the presence of alcohol, Xanax, codeine, hydrocodone, marijuana and cocaine metabolite. This cocktail of substances was allegedly used in a suicide attempt. Regardless of the report, Clark's partner, Salena Manni, believes the DA wanted to shift blame. 

"It's not about anything that happened before that," Manni said during a news conference following the DA's announcement. "It's about the officers who murdered him."

The details in previous days leading up to the shooting bear no weight, Manni added. 

"What I feel the DA announced today was not about what happened on March 16, was not about what happened on March 17. It was what happened on March 18, when the officers murdered my fiancée," Manni told reporters. "That's what this is about."

Following the devastating news, Clark's mother, Se'Quette Clark, told reporters the decision not to prosecute the officers only confirms her lack of faith in the justice system.  

"My faith in the justice system is what it has been: It's not for us. It's not for the Black community," she said. "It's what they've shown us time and time again." Se'Quette Clark said.

"But I want people to understand, the fact that no criminal charges will be filed in this case does not diminish in any way the tragedy, the anger, the frustration that we've heard since the time of his death," she added. "We cannot ignore that."
