A Sunday morning shooting, and a general feeling of what feels like one crime after another, has some in Sacramento concerned about their personal safety. The shooting at 29th and E streets where a person was shot in the groin became a tipping point for community members KCRA 3 spoke with. This includes Sahar Sarang, a midtown Sacramento resident who does not believe the response time from police is as good as it could be. “Unless anyone’s like hurt, murdered, raped, I don’t feel like they come out,” Sarang said. “It’s not just the unhoused, it’s criminals and drug addicts that are so clearly high, they shoot heroin and smoke crack on our property,” Sarang said while pointing toward her Sacramento block. Sarang, a second-grade teacher, has lived in midtown for seven years, but after several dangerous encounters, Sarang says enough is enough. She feels like she would need to move if public safety isn’t improved.The early Sunday morning shooting is the second in the same general area in a week, after last Saturday, a man was shot at Sutter’s Landing Beach.Nick Kufasimes, an East Sacramento resident for 56 years, lives blocks away from where the latest shooting happened.”All we get is, ‘There’s nothing we can do.’ There are things you can do. There are crimes being committed; enforce the crimes,” Kufasimes said. Kufasimes said crime in the area is a growing issue, and he wants local politicians to be held accountable.
