The rapper was charged with assault with a firearm and as a prohibited person in possession of a firearm, Lester said at the time. An initial press release from the Sacramento Police Department listed Martin’s name as Dandre.

“Right now, that’s really all we can say about him,” she said.

“As you know, this is a complex investigation and we are looking for multiple suspects and as such we are currently working to identify his role in the night of the shooting.”

Shockingly, a post on Martin’s social media early Sunday morning read: “Smh, I’m hit…”

Members of Martin’s friends and family commented, asking the man to reach out to them. However, when news of the arrest broke, the public found Martin’s social media and began flooding with comments.

SWAT members and Sacramento Police Department detectives also issued search warrants at three homes and recovered a handgun.

There are no changes to the 12 surviving victims, who are suffering from injuries, Lester said.

Lester confirmed Monday that over 100 shell casings were found at the scene.

All six victims of the shooting, three men and three women were confirmed: 32-year-old Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi; 29-year-old Devazia Turner; 21-year-old Johntaya “JoJo” Alexander; Melinda Davis, 57; Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21; and father of two Sergio Harris, 38.

Investigators determined that at least three buildings and three vehicles were hit by gunfire.

A video received from KCRA showed that a fight involving at least three men broke out just before gunfire began around 2 a.m.

“We know there was a big fight just before the shooting and we have confirmed that there are multiple shooters,” Lester said Sunday.

“The level of violence that has just happened in our city is unprecedented in my 27 years with the Sacramento Police Department.”


The SPD thanked the community for the “overwhelming assistance”.

Over 100 videos and images were submitted through the department’s Community Evidence Portal.

“We continue to encourage the community to use the community evidence portal to provide photos and videos directly to the department.”

Pop stars and ex-Disney duo Aly & AJ announced Sunday that it was them “caught in the crossfire” of the shooting upon exiting a venue they had just performed at but sheltered in their tour bus until the shore was clear.

“Dismayed by the mass shooting outside the Sacramento venue last night,” the sisters announced on Twitter on Sunday.

“We must do something about gun violence in this country.”

President Joe Biden also issued a statement Sunday responding to the tragic shooting with calls for new gun laws.

“Today, America mourns yet another community devastated by gun violence,” Biden said.

“But we must do more than just mourn; we have to take action.”
