Details about the shooting were not readily available, and at 3:52 a.m., Sacramento Police tweeted, “Conditions unknown at this time. Please avoid the area as a large police presence will remain and the scene remains active.”

By late afternoon, more details were released, including news that a fight preceded the shooting.

CNN quoted Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester saying, “We know that a large fight took place just prior to the shootings. And we have confirmed that there are multiple shooters.”

KCRA points out that police recovered a stolen gun at the scene of the shooting.
