WOMAN DIES AT GUN RANGE A woman died Saturday afternoon from a gunshot wound to the head she received at a Ripon firearms range, police said. Ripon police are withholding the woman’s name until her family is notified. The shooting occurred at Barnwood Arms, a gun shop and indoor firearms range on East Main Street. Officers responded to a report there of a person who had been shot in the head at 12:51 p.m. When emergency responders arrived minutes later, they found the woman in the firearms range portion of the business. She was taken to Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, where she died, police said. Detectives are investigating the shooting and could not provide any further details on the incident, Sgt. Steve Merchant said. He said investigators could not give a definitive answer as to what happened at the range until an autopsy is conducted later this week. [Modesto]
