2nd man arrested on gun charges in Sacramento mass shooting

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – 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, making him one of the wounded. He remains hospitalized, but will be booked into jail when he is fit for incarceration.

Police say he faces charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun. Police also say Martin is the brother of the first suspect, who was arrested, 26-year-old Dandrae Martin. Neither has been accused of homicide.
