SACRAMENTO, California — Police in Sacramento say six people are dead and at least nine others have been injured after a shooting in downtown Sacramento.

The Sacramento Police Department says the shooting happened early this morning.

Video posted on Twitter shows people running through the street as the sound of rapid gunfire can be heard in the background. Video shows multiple ambulances had been sent to the scene.

Police provide few details about the circumstances surrounding the shooting but say in a tweet that a “large police presence will remain and the scene remains active.” Phone messages seeking comment were left with the Sacramento police.

Residents are asked to avoid the area, which is packed with restaurants and bars that leads to the Golden One Center, where the Sacramento Kings play basketball.
