Six dead, 10 injured, in early morning shooting in downtown Sacramento
SACRAMENTO — Six people were killed and ten injured in a shooting in downtown Sacramento, California, that took place in a busy nightlife district early Sunday morning, police said.
Police were still looking for the shooter and no one was in custody, Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester told reporters.
Reuters could not independently verify the footage.
“The numbers of dead and wounded are difficult to comprehend. We await more information about exactly what transpired in this tragic incident,” Mayor Darrell Steinberg said on Twitter. “Rising gun violence is the scourge of our city, state and nation, and I support all actions to reduce it.
The incident comes a little more than a month after a man shot and killed his three children and a fourth person before taking his own life in the same city.
