Pop duo Aly & AJ said their tour bus was “caught in the crossfire” of the downtown Sacramento shooting that killed six people and injured 12 early Sunday morning.
Sisters Alyson and Amanda Michalka had Saturday night at the Crest Theatre, the venue on K Street, just steps from where gunfire rang out after 2am when the many bars and clubs in the area were closing.
“Dismayed by the mass shooting outside the Sacramento venue last night. All our thoughts are with the families of those who lost their lives and those who are recovering today. We pray for the health workers who are caring for them. We hope all our fans got home safely,” the group wrote on Twitter on Sunday.
“Our bus was caught in the crossfire but we protected ourselves in place and everyone in our tour group is fine,” they added. “Thank you to everyone who has signed up. A reminder to keep your loved ones extra close today. We must do something about gun violence in this country.”
Tyler the Creator also performed in Sacramento Saturday night at the Golden 1 Center, just blocks from where the shooting took place.
Kali Uchis, who opened for the rapper, said she was “devastated” by the shooting. “Our deepest condolences go to the families of those who have lost their lives. We pray that those injured make a speedy recovery and that everyone at our show made it home safely,” she wrote on Twitter.
Investigators believe multiple gunmen opened fire after a major fight just steps from the city’s Capitol.
“We know there was a major fight just before the shooting, and we have confirmed that there are multiple shooters,” Sacramento Police Chief Kathy Lester said at a news conference Sunday.
Three men and three women were killed.
