Two people are dead and three others injured, including a man police have arrested for his part in a wild barroom shootout in Old Sacramento between firework shows.
Sacramento police said at about 9:40 p.m. officers responded to the sound of gunshots in the 1000 block of 2nd Street in the historic district. Witnesses said the shooting took place at the Sports Corner Cafe, a sports bar at 1030 2nd St. This morning, a trail of blood led away from the bar, which was closed. A man who said he was there to clean it - but would not give his name - said he did not expect it to open today.
Old Sacramento was packed with families who had come for a 9 p.m. fireworks show and other wholesome entertainment. When officers arrived on the scene, they eventually were to find five people shot, two of whom died later on the scene.
