Murder charges were filed in court against three suspects in connection with the mass shooting, which claimed the lives of six people and left a dozen more injured in Sacramento last April 3.
Aside from murder, Sacramento County District Attorney Anne Marie Schubert also indicted Smiley Martin, his brother Dandrae Martin and Mtula Payton for illegally possessing firearms.
Based on court records, the detained suspects were allegedly among a group of at least five people who opened fire in California’s capital city before dawn on April 3
Authorities said the violence was sparked by a feud between two rival gangs, the Garden Blocc Crips and G-Mobb, and their allies.
Payton and the Martin brothers are accused of killing bystanders Johntaya Alexander, Yamile Martinez-Andrade, and Melinda Davis.
Aside from the three, the three other victims who died are Devazia Turner, Sergio Harris, and Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi.
Sources said if convicted, all three men could face the death penalty.
