DIXON, Calif. - A Dixon teenager accused of shooting at a police officer Wednesday will be tried as an adult, according to the Solano County district attorney.
A day after police took 15-year-old Bret Baugher into custody in the shooting at Hall Memorial Park next to Dixon High, parents still shudder to think that the incident could have easily turned into a deadly school shooting.
"We could have had a really bad situation here, and just thinking about that, my stomach really, really in knots," Gloria Garcia said.
For Garcia, the case is particularly troubling since her son Alex knows the suspect.
"Last year he was pretty chill and cool. He was like cool to talk with and everything, and this year I kinda like stayed away from him from noticing the behaviors," Alex Flores said. He attends Dixon High with Baugher.
