Threats report prompts SWAT call-out


A report that a 47-year-old Gardnerville woman threatened a relative prompted a call-out of the Sheriff’s Special Weapons and Tactics and the Crisis Negotiation teams early Saturday morning.

According to court documents, deputies responded to an address on Kittyhawk at about 1 a.m., where the relative crawled out a bathroom window.

After repeated calls, it was learned that Shannon West, 47, made her way north to the Stephanie Way neighborhood.

West surrendered to authorities at 5:30 a.m. She was booked into Douglas County Jail for assault with a deadly weapon, child abuse and obstructing.
