Police say Despite Recent Incidents, Midtown Crime on the Decline

SACRAMENTO-

The overnight shooting that took place in Midtown Friday morning not only rattled a few nerves; it also caught the attention of several concerned citizens.

No one was hurt in the drive-by shooting that took out a few windows near the corner of 18th and L Streets.  Police say they have yet to locate an eyewitness.  But for some who live in the area, they are growing concerned over the violence that has occurred in Midtown recently.

“I feel safe in my home, but as soon as I step outside it’s a different feeling,” said neighbor Isala Perez.

Sacramento Police say the crime in Midtown has actually declined slightly since the first of the year.

However, a man was beaten to death on March 17 and later that same day, someone assaulted another man with a baseball bat.  Now, the shooting at 18th and L.

Bullets and beatings, to most, is a cause for concern.
