Sacramento police make second arrest after mass shooting that left 6 dead

Source: CBS News

Police in Sacramento say a second suspect has been arrested in connection with the weekend mass shooting that killed six people and wounded 12. A police statement Tuesday says 27-year-old Smiley Martin was seriously injured in the gunfire early Sunday and remains hospitalized, but will be booked into jail once he is fit for incarceration.

He faces charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun.

Police say Martin is the brother of the first suspect, 26-year-old Dandrae Martin. Neither has been accused of homicide.

Yes, you read that right: Smiley Martin had a MACHINE GUN in downtown Sacramento and he used it on a crowd of people. Full-automatic weapon. Tell me again how guns make us safer.
