"I am horrified by the terrible violence in our city that took the lives of 6 people and injured at least 10 more, and I pray for the victims and their families and friends. We cannot accept these acts of violence in our community and the perpetrators must be brought to justice. Please help by reporting any information you or anyone you know may have on the person or persons responsible for this tragedy to the Sacramento City Police Department as soon as possible by contacting the investigators at 916-264-5471.
