Good morning, L.A. It’s April 4.

A shooting in downtown Sacramento left six people dead and at least 12 people injured. 

The incident took place near 10th and K Streets, just several blocks from the Capitol building. As of Sunday afternoon, no one had been arrested in connection to the shooting, and officials were still seeking the public’s help with any tips.

Police were reportedly nearby when the shots first rang out, and headed to the scene.

The area is home to a number of restaurants, bars and clubs, and the shooting occurred right as most establishments were closing and people were leaving.

In videos posted online, crowds can be seen running from the sound of gunfire, including what sounds like the rapid-fire of an automatic weapon. Footage also shows a physical fight on the street involving a large group of people, but it’s not clear whether the fight was related to the shooting.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg called the number of people killed and injured “difficult to comprehend.” He went on to say that “[r]ising gun violence is the scourge of our city, state and nation, and I support all actions to reduce it. “

The Sacramento Police Department posted a QR code on Twitter for witnesses to upload any video they have of the scene.
