Black Lives Matter marched through Oak Park on Sunday night just days after 19-year-old Darell Richards was shot and killed by Sacramento police.

This march had been planned before this most recent shooting, but dozens still came together demanding justice after Richards' death.

Police say he pointed a gun at them. They later learned it was a pellet gun.

But with police’s narrative in doubt following March’s shooting death of Stephon Clark, — a killing of an unarmed Black man that has yet to result in any charges against the shooter — it was likely tough for the community to believe the department this time around.
