The Sacramento Police Department made its third arrest related to Sunday’s mass shooting that left six dead and injured twelve according to a press release.

“Detectives recovered a handgun and arrested 31-year-old Daviyonne Dawson late Monday on charges of being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm,” the statement said.

Police said Dawson is currently not charged with crimes directly related to the shootings.

“Based on the type of firearm recovered, detectives do not believe that this gun was used in the shooting. Detectives are continuing to investigate this crime and identify additional suspects,” police said.

Earlier this week, officers arrested Dandrae Martin, 26, and Smiley Martin, 27. Dandrae faces charges of assault with a firearm and being a prohibited person in possession of a firearm.

Smiley will be facing charges of possession of a firearm by a prohibited person and possession of a machine gun.

Sacramento Investigators continue to examine evidence, contact witnesses, and interview involved parties to gain a complete understanding of the incident; different and additional charges may apply, according to the statement.

The Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office will be reviewing all evidence to determine appropriate charges.

DA Anne Marie Schubert released a statement following the arrest of Dandrae Martin.

“This individual has not been arrested for any homicide related to this incident. The investigation is highly complex involving many witnesses, videos of numerous types and significant physical evidence,” District Schubert said.

Sacramento police have yet to make an arrest directly related to the shooting.
