A south Sacramento rapper wanted by police in connection with gang-related assaults in March has been arrested, authorities said.
Donald Oliver, 29, also known as "Lavish D," was taken into custody in Alabama on Saturday night, said police Officer Michele Gigante. Oliver was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon after Sacramento police secured a warrant for his arrest in March.
According to police, Oliver is associated with a gang on Mack Road. Tensions between that gang and others in Oak Park culminated in at least three shootings in March that left six people injured in just two days.
Police say they believe the shootings were acts of retaliation between the two gangs.
