Police said Tuesday that they have made a second arrest in the Sacramento, California, mass shooting in which at least six were killed.

The Sacramento Police Department said the second person arrested was found at the scene of the early Sunday morning shooting "with "serious injuries from gunfire" and taken to a local hospital, according to CNN.

The suspect was "quickly identified as a person of interest and has remained under the supervision of an officer at the hospital while his treatment continues," the police department also said.

Still, other suspected shooters remain at large as of Tuesday, following the mass shooting in which over 100 bullets were fired and six people were killed. 

The first suspected arrested, on Monday, has been identified as Dandrae Martin, 26.

Martin is charged with assault with a deadly weapon and carrying a loaded gun as a convict in connection with the shooting that also injured 12.

Martin has been identified only as a "related suspect" in the case and will appear in court Tuesday. His arrest record includes having spent over 16 months an Arizona facility for violating probation in a felony aggravated-assault case. 

Detectives and SWAT team members reportedly found a handgun during searches of several area homes in connection with the shootings.

Police are investigating whether the shooting was connected to a street brawl that broke out just prior to gunshots beginning to fly. In videos of the shooting, people can be seen on video tussling on the street.

California has some of the strictest gun laws in the U.S., though a new bill making its way through the state assembly would allow citizens to sue those with illegal weapons – a measure modeled off of the controversial Texas abortion bill.
