Winters Police Department released a statement on their social media platforms that there are no safety concerns to the public following a call that involved two juveniles who were in a verbal confrontation at 1:17 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 9 in the Winters Community Library parking lot. According to an email sent to the Express from WPD, a juvenile allegedly brandished a weapon to another juvenile following a verbal confrontation in the library parking lot.  The message, sent by WPD Community Services Officer Gail Jimenez, said no weapon was seen by witnesses and no weapon was located at the scene.  The email also confirmed the other juvenile who allegedly brandished the weapon during the confrontation was identified and was cooperative with WPD with the investigation. No weapon was located after WPD conducted a search of the juvenile’s person, vehicle and residence. Winters Joint Unified School District Superintendent Todd Cutler told the Express that the call he and Winters High School John Barsotti initially received was regarding a fight in the parking lot. Cutler said that once there, they received information from the involved student that a gun was allegedly brandished and the person had already left the area in a vehicle. Cutler said they take all reports of this nature seriously, and when this kind of information came in the local law enforcement was immediately called to assist with the situation. According to Cutler, when they received the information there was not a gun reported to be on campus and WPD officers left to search for the vehicle and the other juvenile described. “If we felt that there was an immediate threat we would have locked down,” Cutler said.  WPD is asking anyone with information regarding this case to contact them at 530-795-4561, and to reference case 19-751.]]>
