Dixon teen shooting suspect to be tried as adult


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.

Emergency Medical Services in Which We Can All Take Pride

Emergency Medical Services in Which We Can All Take Pride

By Kristin Weivoda, Yolo County EMS Administrator

Have you ever needed an ambulance in Yolo County?  Or ever wondered how the program works?

The program – emergency medical services, or EMS – is a type of emergency service dedicated to providing out-of-hospital acute medical care, transport to definitive care and other medical transport of patients with illnesses or injuries which prevent the patient from transporting themselves.  In short, paramedic/ambulance service.

Each county in California is authorized to develop an EMS program and a local EMS agency that oversees the delivery of such services within its geographical boundaries.  Until last year, Yolo County was part of a multi-county EMS agency.  On July 1, 2013, Yolo County implemented its own independent local EMS agency to meet and serve the needs of Yolo County residents, and thus, became one of 33 local EMS agencies in California.
