One shooter is seen grabbing a child and taking off in a silver sedan with another man. They were later tracked down in a blue car by two gang detectives.
What happens next is explained in a re-enactment video from the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department.

Geiger’s family says the re-enactment lacks transparency and accountability.
“I believe there is more to the story. I believe that there’s no way individuals who have lied to communities, manipulated over and over again, would be outright truthful,” a family member said Friday afternoon.
The sheriff’s department said because the detectives were undercover, their cars don’t have cameras.
The detective was taken to a hospital but is now recovering at home. The other suspect is now in jail.MORE NEWS: Early COVID Patient Remembers Military Quarantine After Cruise Ship Outbreak
