Sacramento police believe multiple shooters were involved in a mass shooting early Sunday in downtown Sacramento that killed six adults and left 12 other people injured.

Sacramento police Chief Kathy Lester said Sunday afternoon that the shootings broke out after a large fight and killed three men and three women.

Lester said police were patrolling the area at about 2 a.m. when they heard gunfire. When they arrived at the scene, they found a large crowd gathered on the street.

"Officers began lifesaving measures to multiple victims on scene," police said. "Despite these efforts, six victims were pronounced deceased at the scene."

Another 12 people had varying degrees of injuries, police said in an update after earlier saying 10 people were hurt.

As of Sunday evening, KCRA 3 has learned that four of those people have life-threatening injuries.

Four of the shooting victims were taken to UC Davis Medical Center and one to Sutter hospital, KCRA 3 has confirmed.
