The Sacramento Police Department announced today that one suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting in Sacramento that left six people dead and twelve others injured.
The suspect is 26-year old Dandrae Martin. Martin is currently being charged with two felonies. Assault with a deadly weapon and a convicted felon in possession of a loaded firearm. He also has an outstanding warrant from Riverside County that Fox News reported as being from 2015 for domestic violence-related charges. He is not yet charged with any of the deaths in Sunday’s shooting.
Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert issued the following statement in regards to the arrest of Dandrae Martin.
Yesterday, Sacramento Police Chief Lester advised the public that there were multiple shooters involved in this incident. The Sacramento Police Department made an arrest of an individual for assault with a firearm and a gun related charge. This individual has not been arrested for any homicide related to this incident. The investigation is highly complex involving many witnesses, videos of numerous types and significant physical evidence. This is an ongoing investigation and we anticipate more arrests in this case. Our ethical obligations as prosecutors prevents us from commenting about the specifics of the case. We will be reviewing the evidence provided to our office and making a determination of what, if any, charges are appropriate. If charges are filed, the complaint will be released to the public.
Earlier today the Sacramento Coroner released the names of the six people that were killed.
