Sacramento shooting: All six victims identified

Officials have identified all six people who were killed in a shooting in the centre of Sacramento, California’s capital, on Sunday.

No arrests have yet been made in this year’s worst US mass shooting so far, close to the state Capitol building.

Three of the victims were men: Sergio Harris, 38, De’Vazia Turner, 29, and Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi, 32.

Three women were also shot dead: Johntaya Alexander, 21, Melinda Davis, 57, and Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21.

Police say all six victims died at the scene, when multiple shooters opened fire just after 02:00 (09:00 GMT) on Sunday near the junction of 10th and K Street.

The violence was “unprecedented” for the city, its police chief said.
