SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - Sacramento officials say they've made 29 arrests and seized 211 firearms as part of a crackdown on gang violence this month.

The sweep announced Wednesday was organized by city, county and federal law enforcement agencies after a shooting in August at a neighborhood park on the city's south side.

Investigators say the shooting was the result of a two-year feud by rival gangs that brought other shootings, attempted murders and slayings.

More than 200 officers began making arrests and serving more than 30 search warrants last week.

The 29 suspects face charges including homicide, robbery, narcotic sales, auto theft, identity theft, firearms trafficking and firearms possession.

Police say the seized firearms included assault weapons and machine guns. Many other weapons were illegally altered.

Showers are tapering off early Tuesday, and we're left with areas of dense fog for your Tuesday morning commute. We'll have clearing skies and warmer temperatures ahead for your Tuesday afternoon, but the next wet system will arrive on Wednesday. Some showers will linger Thursday, but we'll dry and and become chilly late this week. A substantial wet system will then bring heavy rain and snow to our region from Sunday through at least the start of next week.
