SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A year after a deadly shooting rocked Old Sacramento on New Year’s Eve, businesses and police are taking steps to make sure it doesn’t happen again.
Some of the businesses we spoke to on Friday say they are concerned crowds won’t be as large, because they’re afraid. But police say they shouldn’t be.
2012 ended with a shooting that left a bar patron and bouncer dead and a security guard wounded—all, police say, over a spilled beer.
Lakyn Baker was working just across the street. While she says it was awful, she’s concerned people might stay away from Old Sacramento this year.
“I’m hoping that it won’t have that much of an effect on our New Year’s, because New Year’s tends to be one of the biggest days down here that we have,” she said.
Police say there will be more than 100 officers in the area, and there will be zero tolerance for any disruptive behavior.
River City Saloon Manager Hollie Agesen says they’re excited and ready.
“We’re going to have a little bit of extra security walking the bar and making sure everybody’s having a good time,” she said.
