Sunday’s downtown shooting occurred about two blocks north of the California State Capitol building and about four blocks east of the Golden 1 Center arena — the home of the NBA Sacramento Kings. The California State Capitol is located about three blocks south of the crime scene.
According to Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester, investigators did not initially connect the shooting to a particular venue or event. She also said there was a fight immediately prior to the shooting, and that there were multiple shooters.
A Twitter video showed people running down the street while rapid gunfire was heard in the background. Another Twitter video showed a large group of people surrounding two people fighting when gunfire was heard. A video from Public Safety News (PSN) showed victims down on the sidewalk bleeding and/or treated with CPR by police officers and paramedics.
Immediately after the shooting, Sacramento police and the California Highway Patrol closed the area with a perimeter within 9th Street to 13th Street, and L to J Streets. Investigators recovered a stolen handgun from the scene. The ATF was called in to assist the Sacramento Police Department in the investigation.
