At least two videos circulating on social media captured sounds of shots fired, as bystanders claim they heard more than fifty shots ring out.

One of the videos shows multiple people fighting on the sidewalk as rapid gunfire strikes, prompting people to run through the streets.

It is not clear if anyone involved in the brawl was struck.

Berry Accius, of Sacramento’s Voice of the Youth, told KXTV he arrived to the ‘chaotic’ scene around 2.30am. 

‘A lot of victims with blood, just watching some of the families that didn’t know if their loved one was alive, running, trying to figure out what was happening, people distraught, people discombobulated,’ Accius recalled. ‘It was just horrific.’

Police have not provided any information about the shooter.
