Weapons Ar­rest Re­ported

The Oakdale Leader - - NEWS -

An Oak­dale man was ar­rested in con­nec­tion with reck­lessly dis­charg­ing a firearm late Thurs­day af­ter­noon, Aug. 30.

There were no in­juries or prop­erty dam­age as a re­sult of the in­ci­dent.

Oak­dale Po­lice re­sponded to a re­port of a neigh­bor­hood dis­tur­bance about 4 p.m. Thurs­day, after re­ceiv­ing 9-1-1 calls of a dis­tur­bance in­volv­ing gun­fire in the 20 block of Wil­low Glen Av­enue. Of­fi­cers re­sponded to the area and con­tacted con­struc­tion work­ers who were run­ning to­wards them upon their ar­rival. The work­ers re­ported that a man ap­proached one of the work­ers, bran­dished a hand­gun, and then dis­charged the weapon into the air.

After fir­ing the hand­gun, the man went into a nearby house. Wit­nesses pointed out the house to of­fi­cers on scene. Of­fi­cers sub­se­quently con­tacted Ken­neth Ed­win John­son, 66, at his res­i­dence in the Wil­low Glen neigh­bor­hood. He was iden­ti­fied as the man who had fired the gun into the air. A loaded hand­gun with a large ca­pac­ity magazine was re­cov­ered dur­ing the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

John­son was ar­rested and booked at the Stanis­laus County Jail for al­leged vi­o­la­tions of 246.3(a) P.C. Dis­charge of Firearm with Gross Neg­li­gence and 32310 P.C. Pos­ses­sion of a Large Ca­pac­ity Magazine. Both charges are felonies.
