Two people were arrested in connection with a shooting in Old Sacramento on Friday night that left two dead and four others hurt, according to police.

The suspects were identified Saturday as 22-year-old Marcus Trull and 21-year-old Cedric Salcedo, the Sacramento Police Department said. Trull and Salcedo were detained during the initial investigation and have been booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail on homicide and felony assault charges.

Police believe there are no outstanding suspects. Patrol officers reported hearing shots fired just before 11:45 p.m. around Front and L streets, Sacramento police said on Saturday.

“I live right over there, and so I can see everything that happens out here, and when I heard a bunch of gunshots I thought it was fireworks or something,” said Greg Sumbado, who has lived and worked in Old Sacramento for over a decade. “It just seems like everyone’s concern lately is that more bad things are happening [in Old Sacramento] in the evening than there has been in the past,” said Sumbado, explaining he hears gunshots from his home in Old Sacramento often at night. Two people believed to be men were killed in the shooting and four others were hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries. Multiple firearms were recovered at the scene, police said. While the motive for the shooting was unknown, investigators believe there was some type of altercation before the shooting and this was not an active shooter situation. Roads surrounding the Old Sacramento area were still blocked off Saturday morning as police investigated the shooting. Evidence cones could be seen near the old train tracks in front of Joe’s Crab Shack.

“This just happens way too much everywhere… there’s just way too many shootings in America,” said Pamela DelPiero. She said she was staying at the Delta King while on vacation, and was shocked to wake up behind crime tape. DelPiero said they didn’t hear anything at the time of the shooting because they were watching fireworks. Sacramento police say the investigation is in its early stages. The active scene lasted hours into the afternoon and kept many businesses closed on Saturday. “I think it’ll impact the number of people who’ll come down here,” said Train Master, Phil Reif, at the G Willikers Toy Emporium. Information on those who were killed will be released after the victims’ next of kin have been notified.
