Sacramento 'gunman' brandishes handgun in Facebook live hours before opening 'fire with machine gun': Suspect is in custody along with his younger brother and one other man for wild shooting

At least 6 people are killed and 10 wounded after gunman with automatic rifle opens fire from car as bars let out in Sacramento

Martin was among those injured. He was taken to the hospital but was arrested on Tuesday but has now been booked into the Sacramento County Jail.

One of the men arrested for shooting dead six people in a wild gunfight in Sacramento on Sunday filmed himself on Facebook live brandishing a weapon hours before allegedly opening fire. 

Smiley Martin, 27, appears in the video holding a black handgun which he pointed towards the camera. One of the guns used in the shooting was a stolen handgun, according to police.

He says little throughout the 38-second clip but other men can be heard in the background. Law enforcement wiped the video from his Facebook account after his arrest on Tuesday.

After he posted, a wild shooting spree broke out on the corner of 10th Street and K Street in Sacramento as bars and nightclubs let out for the night. 

Witnesses described shooters firing indiscriminately at one another from cars and men running away from the scene with weapons in their hands.

'Based on information developed during this investigation, Smiley Martin was taken into custody by Sacramento Police Department detectives on April 5, 2022.

'Once Smiley Martin's medical care has been completed and he is determined to be fit for incarceration, he will be booked at the Sacramento County Main Jail for possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun.' 

Police are still asking for photos and videos from the public. Since Sunday, officers say they have received more than 170 pieces of evidence. 

In a statement on Monday, Schubert said she believes more people will be taken into custody. 

She emphasized the fact that no one has been charged with murder or manslaughter. '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,' she said.

At least six dead in barrage of bullets fired from car after bars let out in Sacramento 

Six people were killed and ten injured in a mass shooting in California's capital city early Sunday morning as a gunman with an automatic rifle opened fired on a group of revelers fighting outside a bar.

Sacramento police said shots rang out near 10th and J Streets, about two blocks from the capitol building, around 2am, prompting officers to rush to the scene.

When police arrived to the area, known for its strip of nightclubs and bars, they found a large group gathered and six dead in the street. Ten other victims were transported to area hospitals by ambulance and private vehicles. Their conditions remain unknown. 

Police Chief Kathy Lester, noting the investigation is still 'very preliminary,' said it is unclear if the victims were deliberately targeted, The Sacramento Bee reported. 

Lester, calling the shooting 'a really tragic, unfortunate situation,' said the 'complex is now secure' but the gunman remains at large. She has asked for the public's help in identifying the suspect or suspects responsible for the tragedy. 

'We are asking for the public's help,' she said. 'If anyone saw anything, has video or can provide any information to the police department, we are asking for their assistance.'

That's what smart niggers do, but not smart enough to create an app to help the community that is burying into poverty.
