The US Marshal's Office in Cheyenne shared the following comments in reference to the Douglas Shooting on Thursday June 30th 2016:
“On Thursday, June 30, Deputy U.S. Marshals were involved in a line-of-duty shooting incident in Converse County, WY, while attempting to apprehend fugitive Jasen Scott Ramirez, who was wanted on drug charges. During the attempted arrest, Ramirez was shot. He was immediately transported to a local medical facility where he later died of his injuries. No law enforcement officers were injured. The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigations is the lead investigative agency for this incident. As a matter of policy, the Marshals Service will not release the names of deputy marshals involved in shooting incidents until the conclusion of all investigations surrounding the incident. As this is an ongoing investigation, we cannot provide further comment.” #oilcity
