A third person was arrested in relation with the mass shooting last weekend in Sacramento.

31-year-old Daviyonne/Daviyon Dawson was charged will illegally possessing a firearm. He posted $500,000 bail and was released. Police say they do not believe Dawson used his weapon in the shooting incident and do not believe that he is a suspect in the shooting itself. His arrest stems from the fact that he is a convicted felon and was seen carrying a gun after the shooting.

In his past, Dawson has felony cases from 2012, 2014 and 2015 and was charged in 2014 with the Halloween assault on a man as a member of the Starz street gang. Court documents state that Dawson also was charged with being a street gang member who “engaged in a pattern of criminal gang activity and did willfully promote, further and assist in felony criminal conduct by said gang members.”

Initial suspect Dandrae Martin remains in jail without bail. He made a brief initial court appearance on Tuesday and his next scheduled court date is April 26th. Chief Deputy District Attorney Rod Norgaard answered the question as to why Dandrae wasn’t charged with assault, saying, ““As the elected District Attorney, Anne Marie Schubert indicated this is a very complex case with a lot of evidence. As the investigation is ongoing, our ethical obligations as prosecutors prevent us from commenting on the evidence or the initial charging decisions.”

The second suspect, his brother Smiley Martin, is still in the hospital for his gunshot injury in the incident.
