Inside lengthy rap sheet of Sacramento shooting suspect Dandrae Martin ‘who killed six’ before chilling last post

A SUSPECT arrested in connection with a mass shooting that left six people dead was previously charged with assault and domestic violence, court records show.

Dandrae Martin, 26, was arrested on charges of assault with a firearm after gunfire erupted in Sacramento, California on Sunday.


He was also booked on charges of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

But, officers remain unsure if he allegedly opened fire first or shot back in response, according to CBS13.

Cops said over 100 bullet casings were recovered from the scene.

Court records show that Martin pled guilty to domestic violence in Riverside County in 2014.

The rapper was released from jail in Arizona in November 2020, according to court records cited by CBS5.

Cops arrested Martin as a “related suspect” after gunfire erupted in the Californian state capital.

He has not been booked on homicide charges, according to police.

Following the shooting, a post on Martin's social media read: "Smh, I'm hit."

Three men and three women were killed in Sacramento while 12 were injured.

The victims have been identified as Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi, 32, Devazia Turner, 29, Johntaya Alexander, 21, Melinda Davis, 57, Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21, and dad of two Sergio Harris, 38.

Pamela Harris said her daughter called her just after 2am local time on Sunday to say that her son Sergio had been shot and killed outside a nightclub.

She said: “She said he was dead. I just collapsed.”

'I COLLAPSED'

Harris told the Today Show Monday: “Hopefully they’ll catch these people and prosecute them to the fullest.

"Because this was senseless. He has two young daughters that love him dearly, and he loved them. They’re not gonna see their father anymore."

Witness Berry Accius told the Associated Press that he saw a girl with a “whole bunch of blood in her body”.

He said that he heard a young girl screaming: “They killed my sister.”

Another witness Kelsey Schar told the outlet that she heard gunshots as she was in the Citizen Hotel.

Schar said she "saw a guy running and just shooting" when she walked to the window at the hotel.

A video obtained by KCRA showed that a fight broke out involving at least three men just before the gunfire started around 2am.

"We know that a large fight took place just prior to the shooting and we have confirmed that there are multiple shooters," Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said.

'UNPRECEDENTED VIOLENCE'

"The scale of violence that just happened in our city is unprecedented in my 27 years at the Sacramento Police Department."

Footage also revealed that 76 shots were fired in 54 seconds as crowds fled the scene.

Pop stars and ex-Disney duo Aly & AJ revealed on Sunday that they were "caught in the crossfire" of the shooting while exiting a venue where they had just performed.

The pair sheltered in place on their tour bus until they got the all-clear.

They said: “Distraught by the mass shooting last night outside the venue in Sacramento.

“We have to do something about gun violence in this country."

President Biden said: "America once again mourns for another community devastated by gun violence."

He continued: "In a single act in Sacramento, six individuals left dead and at least a dozen more injured. Families forever changed.

"Survivors left to heal wounds both visible and invisible."

The area where the shooting took place is packed with bars and restaurants and is just a few blocks from Golden 1 Center, home of the Sacramento Kings basketball team.
