Police say that Ramos, another man and a woman showed up at the residence on S. Ohio early this morning and an argument ensued with some of the occupants inside.
That confrontation spilled outside in front of the home and escalated when Ramos allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired a single shot. The bullet went through the arm of a female in her twenties who had come from inside the house.
The bullet also struck the leg of an unidentified man who was with Ramos. Both the man and woman were treated at Salina Regional Health Center.
