Shots Fired-Winona

No one was injured after shots were fired on Winona's west end last Friday.

A 26-year-old Winona woman admitted to police that she fired three shots into the air last Friday night, in order to scare away a group of people.

Around 10:30 p.m., police spoke with a woman on the 1750 block of West Seventh Street.

The woman said that she was in an argument with some people, and it escalated. She said some used pepper spray. Then, she said she was encircled by people and had been hit with a pole, leading her to fire three shots into the air, causing everyone to run away.

The woman had a permit to carry a gun, as well as a 9 mm Smith and Wesson pistol which had ammunition in it that matched spent cases found near the scene.

No charges have been filed and no one in custody.
