A private autopsy conducted by Dr. Bennet Omalu concluded that Clark was shot eight times, with nearly all of the shots striking him from behind.But the official autopsy made public later said Clark was most likely shot as he approached police, consistent with the officers' story, the Associated Press reported.The pathologist retained by the Sacramento County coroner said Omalu mistook an exit wound for an entry wound, leaving the impression that police first shot Clark from the back, though Omalu defended his conclusion.Clark's family, including his two sons, his parents and his grandparents, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in January seeking more than $20 million from the city and the officers, Terrance Mercadal and Jared Robinet, alleging that the officers used excessive force and that he was a victim of racial profiling.One of the officers who shot Clark is black and the other is white, police said.Clark's mother said after the decision that "I will never get to see my son's face again," and that young people make foolish decisions and mistakes."But 22 does not determine who you are and who you will become," Sequette Clark said.
