The Fort Worth Police Department released body-camera footage Thursday of a shooting March 14 that hospitalized a suspect who is charged with shooting at an officer outside his home.
The suspect, Robert Ramos, 64, is in stable condition, police said Thursday.
Police received a 911 call at about 7:40 p.m. March 14 from a woman who said her husband, Ramos, was intoxicated, was making threats, and was armed with a handgun.
“My husband’s been drinking all day and I asked him to leave and he doesn’t want to leave and he was threatening me,” the woman said in audio of the 911 call released by police. “He also found my gun that was in the safe.”
The woman told Ramos she was calling the police and, “He said, ‘Go ahead because there is going to be a battle’,” the caller told a 911 dispatcher.
The woman left the residence and was parked down the street, according to the call.
Police responded to the 5600 block of Wedgworth Road. The department’s Crisis Intervention Team was also notified and was responding to the scene but did not arrive before shots were fired.
Ramos was standing in the front yard holding a handgun when officers arrived, according to police
“Because of the threat posed to the public by Ramos, officers had to take action immediately to make sure they protected the citizens in the area,” said Fort Worth Police Chief Neil Noakes said at a press conference Thursday.
One officer took cover behind a tree across the street from the front of the house and tried to engage in conversation with Ramos, Noakes said.
“Let me talk to you, Robert,” the officer is heard saying in the bodycam footage.
“You’re OK, Robert,” the officer said in the footage at 7:58 p.m. The officer proceeded to ask if Ramos was “all right.”
Three officers and a sergeant stood along a wall on the side of the house while the officer across the street continued to speak to Ramos.
The first officer spoke with Ramos for about 20 minutes while Ramos continued to walk around the front yard armed with a handgun, Noakes said at the news conference.
