Names of victims revealed, 7 injured released from hospital


The six victims killed in a weekend shooting in downtown Sacramento were identified on Monday.

The identities of the six individuals – three women and three men – have been confirmed by the coroner’s office, according to a news release.

Their names are: Johntaya Alexander, a 21-year-old woman; Melinda Davis, a 57-year-old woman; Yamile Martinez-Andrade, a 21-year-old woman; Devazia Turner, a 29-year-old man; Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi, a 32-year-old man; and Sergio Harris, a 38-year-old man.

Harris was officially identified by the coroner on Sunday evening.

All six people were killed in a shooting that occurred early Sunday in downtown Sacramento as bars closed at 2 a.m. Twelve other people were taken to different hospitals for their injuries. Sacramento police were looking for “multiple” shooters.

Seven of the 12 injured have been discharged from hospital, hospital officials said Monday.

Two of the four people taken to UC Davis Medical Center were released Monday morning, public information officer Stephanie Winn said. Winn said she could not disclose the conditions of the other two victims.

“But we were able to offload two, which is great news,” Winn said.

The five people who were taken to Sutter Medical Center were released on Sunday, media relations officer Monique Binkley Smith said.
