Early Sunday morning, around 2 a.m., a mass shooting occurred in downtown Sacramento, California. At this time, police have confirmed that six individuals lost their lives and 10 people are hospitalized.
The massacre happened on Sacramento’s K Street all the way to L Street, lasting several blocks. Video from the scene shows people fighting about something before automatic gunfire breaks out and multiple rounds are fired.
It is not clear if the shooting is related to the fight which was occurring on the video at the time.

Shooter(s) on the Loose
A police source acknowledged the shooter has not yet been found and the motive behind this shooting is also unclear.
Sacramento’s Democrat Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the shooting points to the growing issue of “gun violence,” which has become a “scourge” on his city and the country as a whole.
Steinberg also said the “tragic incident” must be solved as to motive and catching the perpetrator. The mayor fully supports the efforts of Sacramento’s chief of police Kathy Lester.
Eyewitnesses Describe Chaos
Eyewitnesses, such as Berry Accius, describe pandemonium, with shattered glass from windows and “blood all over them.” Accius said he watched as people bled out on the ground and their family and friends tried to help them.
Ambulances were dispatched immediately, but not everyone could be saved. Accius said the whole situation was extremely “crazy.”
Police are still on scene in large numbers as the suspect is hunted down. It’s also not clear at this time if more than one suspect is involved in this mass killing.

Awaiting More Details
This grisly shooting took place downtown near the stadium where the NBA’s Sacramento Kings basketball team plays and where there are also a lot of pubs and restaurants.
It was packed with people at this time, which is when the gunfire opened up. The exact location appears to be the London nightclub located on 10th Street; although police have not yet confirmed that.
We’re awaiting more details to find out exactly what happened here and why, but there’s no doubt as these kinds of tragic incidents happen in Democrat-run cities, you’re going to hear more and more about the need for gun control and gun safety.
What you never hear from the Democrats is the need to keep violent thugs and criminals in jail.
As mentioned, it’s not currently known if this shooting was done by one person or more. It appears that it could have been more than one, since a witness describes a screaming young girl shouting “they killed my sister” just after the shooting.
Police Chief Lester has asked for anyone with information on the shooter to come forward. The Sacramento Police are also requesting people to turn in any video footage they have from the night.
