Two brothers arrested in connection with Sacramento shooting that killed 6 people

  • A second arrest has been made in connection with the Sacramento, California, shootings that left six people dead.

  • Police arrested Smiley Martin on Tuesday after arresting his brother, Dandrae Martin, the day before.

  • Smiley Martin remained under police guard while he was treated at an area hospital, police said.

A second suspect has been arrested in connection with the shooting in Sacramento, California, which left six people dead and 12 injured.

Smiley Martin, 27, was taken into custody Tuesday and booked on charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun, Sacramento police said in a news release.

Police said Smiley Martin is the brother of Dandrae Martin, who was arrested Monday and charged with assault with a firearm and illegal possession of a firearm.

“Smiley Martin was found at the scene with serious gunshot wounds and was transported to an area hospital for treatment. Smiley Martin was quickly identified as a person of interest and remained under the surveillance of a hospital officer while his treatment continues,” according to the statement.

It’s unclear if police are looking for other suspects. A Sacramento police spokesperson did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.

“Once Smiley Martin’s medical treatment has been completed and he is deemed fit for incarceration, he will be incarcerated at the Sacramento County Main Jail,” according to the press release. “The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office will review all evidence to determine appropriate charges.”

KCRA reported that the local coroner’s office identified the victims Monday morning as follows:

  • Johntaya Alexander, 21, of Elk Grove

  • Melinda Davis, 57 years old

  • Sergio Harris, 38, of North Highlands

  • Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi, 32, of Salinas

  • Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21, of Selma

  • Devazia Turner, 29, of Carmichael

At least three buildings and three cars were also hit by gunfire Sunday, Lester told KCRA, adding that there were more than 100 spent shell casings at the scene.
