Not a great way to ring in the New Year...
The New Year’s Eve celebration in Old Sacramento was violently interrupted by a wild scene on Monday night when five people were shot, including at least two people who died.It just doesn't stop. How many more have to die?
The violence erupted in the 1000 block of 2nd Street at the Sports Corner Cafe near Fanny Ann’s Saloon at about 9:38 p.m., according to the Sacramento Police Department. It wasn’t clear if the shootings happened inside or in front of the establishment.
“I saw the gun in the hand. He was just screaming and shooting,” another woman said.
Some 40,000 people, including lots of families with young children, had gathered in Old Sac for a 9 p.m. fireworks show shortly before the shots rang out. Another fireworks show scheduled for midnight was canceled. A Sacramento Police helicopter circled overhead to announce the midnight cancellation.
Can't even go see some fucking fireworks without a fucking gun fucking shit up.
