After a shooting in downtown Sacramento, six individuals were killed and at least ten more were injured.
(CSU)Sacramento police are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the gunman who opened fire downtown early Sunday, killing six people.
Sacramento Police Chief Katherine Lester said another ten persons were injured in the brawl near 10th and K streets.
Sacramento police stated, “9th St to 13th St is closed between L St and J St while officers investigate a shooting with many victims.” “At this moment, the conditions are unknown. Please stay away from the area since there will be a strong police presence and the situation will be active.”
When gunfire erupted around 2 a.m., a large crowd had gathered in the area, according to Lester. Lester said it was unclear whether the gathering was associated with a specific location or event.
The California State Capitol, Sacramento City Hall, and the Golden 1 Center, where the Sacramento Kings are slated to play Sunday night, are all within a few blocks of the shooting scene.
The area around the gunshot scene is now secure, according to Lester, although police do not have a description of the culprit. Darrell Steinberg, the mayor of Sacramento, expressed his sorrow at the tragic tragedy.
The mayor wrote, “Words can’t express my disbelief & anguish this morning.” “It’s difficult to comprehend the number of people who have died or been injured. More information regarding what happened in this unfortunate occurrence is awaited.”
