Man Booked For Shooting At Construction Crew

A man who fired a shot at people he thought were chasing him may have been suffering from delusions, according to Redding Police. At 2:15PM Thursday afternoon, officers responded for shots fired on Sacramento Drive in South Redding. 50-year-old Ronald Winsell claimed he was being chased by some people at Cascade Park off of Girvan Road.  He said they were shooting at him so he went home and retrieved his 223 caliber rifle and walked outside with it. When he saw a construction crew across the street from his house, he thought the workers were his pursuers and he fired a single shot toward them. Fortunately nobody was struck by the bullet, which went through the garage door and then out a back wall. It was determined by officers that Winsell was delusional and nobody was really after him. Several guns were seized from Winsell's home and he was booked into jail for assault with a deadly weapon and shooting into an inhabited dwelling.
