Police in Sacramento reported a shooting that left six dead and 12 injured this Sunday. The events occurred in the city center, and the police were looking for suspects. Gov. Gavin Newsom called the incident "another horrendous act of gun violence."
Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said a squad car was driving through downtown in a live news conference when she heard gunshots.
The officers who arrived at the scene found four bodies and ten wounded. The police found two other wounded later. As of Sunday afternoon, authorities continued to report no suspects in custody. Police, however, have a gun used in the shooting. According to unsubstantiated versions, there were some 70 firearm shots.
The police chief asked for the public's help in finding those responsible.
"We do know that another mass casualty shooting has occurred, leaving families with loved ones missing, multiple people injured, and a grieving community," the governor said. Newsom said that "the scourge of gun violence remains a crisis in our country, and we must resolve to end this carnage."
