Sacramento Shooting: Chaos in the streets as at least 6 die, and 10 hurt
Report reaching xorlai.com is that six people have lost their lives during the Sacramento Shooting whiles 10 are seriously hurt.
A shooting spree in downtown Sacramento early Sunday left six people dead and at least ten others injured, sparking a massive manhunt for the perpetrator or perpetrators.
Officers arrived at the site around 2 a.m. and discovered victims on the street amid a big crowd gathered outside a string of clubs and restaurants, according to Police Chief Kathy Lester. As they went through the debris, counting bodies not far from the State Capitol, police originally reported “several victims.”
Some of the injured were transferred to hospitals by ambulance, while others went on their own or were taken by friends, according to Lester. Their medical conditions were not disclosed.
Lester said the number of perpetrators was unknown because no arrests had been made. She added she didn’t know if the victims were intentionally targeted.
Several blocks were littered with broken glass and police evidence markers. Investigators were aware of a social media video “that appears to depict an incident” taking place before the shooting, according to the police.
The public can now input evidence to the police department’s web portal.
According to Lester; “If anyone saw anything, has video, can provide any information to the police department we are asking for their assistance”.
Here are some tweets about the Sacramento Shooting;
Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg, in a series of tweets, called gun violence “the scourge of our city, state and nation.” He said Lester, who began the job two weeks ago, has made gun violence a top priority.
“Words can’t express my shock & sadness this morning,” Steinberg tweeted. “The numbers of dead and wounded are difficult to comprehend.”
Gov. Gavin Newsom issued a statement sending condolences to the victim of “yet another horrendous act of gun violence.” He said his office was monitoring reports from the scene.
“What we do know at this point is that another mass casualty shooting has occurred, leaving families with lost loved ones, multiple individuals injured and a community in grief,” Newsom said. “The scourge of gun violence continues to be a crisis in our country, and we must resolve to bring an end to this carnage.”
