The marshal said drugs were clearly present.
"They were consuming cocaine. The victim apparently did not allow another person to use it, so that’s when they got to this altercation," the marshal explained. "The victim ended up knocking the other male to the ground, at that point the suspect in this case (appears) which is Ramon Ramirez. Witnesses say he came off the porch, produced a revolver and shot four to five times striking the victim."
U.S. Marshals say Ramirez fled south of the border. His last known locations in Mexico were the city of Cholula and the state of Zacatecas.
Ramirez is described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 160 pounds. He has a tattoo on his chest of the letter "W."
"Obviously, we ask he turn himself in. But after 15 years of this, we don’t suspect he will," the marshal explained.
Ramirez is considered armed and dangerous. U.S. Marshals encourage anyone with information to reach out to the tip line: 414-297-3707.
"Our tip line is 100% anonymous your information does not go down on any records. It will remain completely confidential," the marshal said.
