The Sports Corner Café in Old Sacramento will not be opening this New Year’s Eve.

Last year, investigators say two gang members got into a fight with another man and a gun was pulled. Two people were killed.

This year, bars are beefing up security to try and make patrons feel safe again.

Anthony Williams, who works in Old Sac, says security guards will also be patting people down as they enter the bar. Sacramento Police will have 100 officers patrolling not only downtown but in the open bars and shops.

Police say their presence inside the businesses will make everyone feel safer. Two firework shows are planned for 9 p.m. and midnight.
