At least 13 people were killed and more than 40 others injured in shootings across the country this weekend, including one in Sacramento, where the police chief called the scale of violence “unprecedented” in her 27-year career there.
Six people died and 12 were injured in that incident early Sunday, which investigators believe involves multiple shooters, Police Chief Katherine Lester said. The mass shooting not far from the California State Capitol is one of the largest of the more than 120 in the US so far this year, according to data collected by the Gun Violence Archive.
The GVA, like CNN, defines a mass shooting as four or more people shot, not including the shooter. There were, however, shootings this weekend that did not meet the definition, including one at a Norfolk, Virginia, mall which left 1 dead and 2 injured.
This weekend’s violence comes just two weeks after the largest-scale US mass shooting in more than two years happened at a car show in Dumas, Arkansas, where one person died and at least 27 were injured.
Here’s a look at the rash of shootings reported this weekend.
Sacramento, California: 6 dead and at least 12 injured
A large crowd had gathered near 10th and K streets in California’s capital when a fight broke out and gunfire erupted about 2 a.m. Sunday, according to Sacramento Police Chief Katherine Lester.
“Investigators are working to identify those responsible for this horrific act. We know that a large fight took place just prior to the shootings,” Lester said Sunday afternoon, adding investigators believe “multiple shooters” were involved.
“The scale of violence that just happened in our city is unprecedented during my 27 years here at the Sacramento Police Department,” Lester said.
Some or all of the victims’ bodies remained at the crime scene Sunday afternoon partially because of the investigation’s complexity, Lester said.
It is not clear why the crowd had gathered or whether it was connected to a venue or event, Lester said.
The downtown location is near a strip of nightclubs and close to several notable landmarks: the California State Capitol, Sacramento City Hall and the sports arena Golden 1 Center, where the NBA’s Sacramento Kings played Sunday night.
Police on Sunday were asking for the public’s help in finding the shooters. Police do not have a description of any suspects.
