Who is Smiley Martin ?

Sacramento police have arrested a second suspect in Sunday’s mass shooting that killed six people and wounded a dozen others near a downtown nightlife district.

Smiley Martin, 27, was arrested on charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun, the Sacramento Police Department announced in a statement early Tuesday.

Martin was among those seriously injured in Sunday’s shooting and remains hospitalized under police supervision; Police said he will be transferred to the county jail once he completes his medical care.

Sacramento police arrest ‘related suspect’ in shooting that killed 6.

Arrested and Charged

Martin is the older brother of 26-year-old Dandrae Martin, whom police arrested Monday and named a “related suspect” in the incident. Young Martin is charged with assault and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Sacramento District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert, in a statement Monday announcing Dandrae Martin’s weapons charges, noted that he was not arrested for any homicide in the April 3 shooting.

Detectives have executed warrants at at least three residences as they search for a motive for the shooting, which is believed to involve “multiple” gunmen. Investigators recovered more than 100 spent shell casings at the scene, along with a stolen pistol that police said had been “converted into a weapon capable of automatic fire.”

Investigation

The investigation is highly complex involving many witnesses, videos of numerous types and significant physical evidence. This is an ongoing investigation and we anticipate more arrests in this case,’ she said.

Investigators are working to unravel what happened at the chaotic scene where gunfire erupted shortly after 2 a.m. Sunday in a stretch of downtown Sacramento known for bars and clubs, just a block from the state Capitol.

Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said Sunday that police arrived at the scene to the sound of gunfire and found a “large crowd” and multiple gunshot victims. The crime scene, Lester said, was “very complex and complicated.”

Lester said a “big fight” preceded the shooting. A video posted on social media shows a fight taking place on a sidewalk as the shooting breaks out, though Sgt. Zach Eaton, a police spokesman, told The Washington Post on Sunday that “we can’t confirm if that fight was what caused the shooting, or if two things were happening at once.”

Killed

The six people killed were between 21 and 57 years old. They were identified Monday as Johntaya Alexander, 21; Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21; Devazia Turner, 29; Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi, 32; Sergio Harris, 38; and Melinda Davis, 57.

About 100 people gathered in downtown Sacramento on Monday as victims were named and their loved ones mourned. A man who identified himself as Harris’s cousin spoke from the crowd and was later invited to speak from microphones out front.

“A change has to begin,” said the man, Jackie Henderson. “When the hell are we going to let it start?”

In an interview Tuesday morning, Schubert declined to discuss the details of Sunday’s shooting, but did address reducing gun violence.

“It doesn’t matter which side of the political aisle you’re on,” said Schubert, a Republican who was elected D.A. in 2014 and is running for California Attorney General. “No one wants guns, illegal guns in the hands of criminals and banned people.”
