SACRAMENTO, Calif (AP) — Six people have been killed and 12 injured in Sacramento in the second mass shooting in five weeks in California's capital city.

The shots were fired early Sunday morning as people filed out of bars and nightclubs.

According to CNN, the shooting occurred in the area of 10th and J Streets.

Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said at a news conference that police were patrolling the area at about 2 a.m. when they heard gunfire.

A video posted to Twitter showed people running through the street amid the sounds of rapid gunfire.

Fire department officials say some of the wounded suffered life-threatening injuries.

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg said the shooting has left his city with a broken heart as investigators search for clues.
