At least two shooters opened fire early Sunday in Sacramento in the city’s second mass shooting in five weeks, killing six people and wounding 12 others as bars closed for the night and crowds emptied onto downtown streets, police said.

It’s anchored by the Golden One Center that attracts big-name concerts and is home to the NBA’s Sacramento Kings. Videos on social media showed what appeared to be an altercation before the gunfire in California’s capital city.

Videos on social media showed what appeared to be an altercation before the gunfire in California’s capital city. Possibly an argument over a girl that got out of hand.
