Melinda Davis

A small bouquet of roses was placed on the sidewalk near the scene of the shooting where one victim, 57-year-old Melinda Davis, reportedly often slept.

The homeless woman was "eccentric" and "a very sassy lady," Shawn Peter, a downtown Sacramento guide, told the Sacramento Bee.

He said he knew Davis for 15 years.

“This was her spot,” Peter said of the area. “This was her world, 24/7.”

Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi

Family of Joshua Hoye-Lucchesi said the 32-year-old who died in the shooting was raised in Sacramento.

“I never wanted kids and I said, if I was to have a kid, I just wanted a boy and I was blessed with a boy,” his mother, Sherilyn Hoye, said after her son’s death.

The heartbroken mom shared a photo of her and her son.

Yamile Martinez-Andrade

Loved ones of Yamile Martinez-Andrade, 21, said she drove to Sacramento for a concert before she was killed in the shooting.

“I still want to believe it’s a lie, that my daughter’s alive,” Teresa Andrade, Yamile’s mother, told KMPH.

She worked with her brother doing landscaping on weekdays and was fondly called Yami.

"After the concert ended Yami and her friend stopped at a bar for drinks until the bar closed," a GoFundMe for the family said.

"Just before leaving the bar, Yami had called her boyfriend to let him know she was heading back to the hotel and that she would call him back once she had arrived, but unfortunately Yami never made it back to the hotel."
