Woman shot to death in Winters; manhunt on

A manhunt was underway Monday night for the suspect in a shooting in downtown Winters that left a 32-year-old woman dead and stunned a community not used to such violent displays. While the victim's name was not yet released by coroner's officials, friends and colleagues identified the slain woman as Leslie Pinkston, a 1999 graduate of Winters High School and the mother of a young daughter. Twelve hours after the shooting, Winters police announced they had obtained an arrest warrant for Pinkston's ex-boyfriend, 30-year-old William Carl Gardner III of Sacramento, in connection with the fatal shooting. Chief Sergio Gutierrez said Gardner should be considered "armed and dangerous."
