Attempt Robbery Results in Tragic Death of Siblings

 

Los Angeles: On Saturday, January 31, 2004, at about 11:00 p.m., the victims; brother and sister Jason Ramos, 16 years-old and Shulma Ramos, 17 years-old, along with a 20 year-old male Hispanic, and two 18 year-old male Hispanics friends, were in a caravan looking for a party in the area of the 3100 block of West Adams Boulevard. They parked their cars and one of the 18 year-olds stepped out of his vehicle to ask about the party. A male Black approached him, pointed a gun at him and demanded that he take off his Boston Celtics Jersey. He started to take off his jersey and for no apparent reason the suspect began shooting at one of the parked cars. The driver of that vehicle immediately drove away from the shooting scene, but was forced to stop nearby, because the injuries to the victims demanded immediate medical attention.

The suspect sought is described as a male Black, about 5’10 to 6’00 tall and 210 to 250 pounds. His vehicle is described as a possible Sports Utility Vehicle or Ford Explorer, light in color.

The motive for this shooting is robbery.
