Local Man Charged in New Haven Shooting

A New Haven man is accused in a shooting in the Cedar Hill neighborhood of the city on a December morning.

Police responded to the area of Ferry and Pecks Streets, and View Street near Warren Place, around 7:30 a.m. on December 19 for reports of gunfire. One caller reported they were shot. The victim drove to the Blatchley Avenue police substation and was treated for non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

Officers identified a suspect, 28-year-old Ricardo Ramos, on December 21 and began looking for him. Police said when investigators attempted the arrest as Ramos left his home on Thursday, he drove off, then caused a minor crash when he jumped from his moving vehicle.

Ramos was captured and charged with criminal attempted assault, reckless endangerment, carrying a pistol without a permit, and criminal possession of a firearm for the December 19 incident. He was also charged with interfering with an officer, reckless endangerment, evading responsibility, weapon in a motor vehicle and criminal possession of a firearm, and other motor vehicle charges for Thursday’s incident.

Ramos was held on a combined $650,000 bond and is due in court Friday.

The shooting investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should contact the New Haven Police Department at 203-946-6304.
