Questions remain unanswered as agencies analyze the Douglas shooting incident

(Douglas, Wyo.) - Many questions still remain unanswered following the end of June shooting incident that occurred in Douglas in the parking lot of Saint James Catholic Church. The Converse County Sheriff's Office shared in a release that the U.S Marshals came to Douglas to serve a federal warrant for Jasen Scott Ramirez, for Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, and Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of a Drug Trafficking Offense. The Converse County Sheriff's Office responded at approximately 2:43 pm to a call of an officer-involved shooting at the Saint James Catholic Church. Local Law Enforcement rendered aid to Jasen Scott Ramirez outside of the vehicle where he was shot, but Mr. Ramirez passed away. A search warrant was obtained on the vehicle where approximately 3.5 ounces of methamphetamine and two handguns were recovered. In addition, about 0.5 ounces of methamphetamine, was found on Mr. Ramirez's person. We spoke with the Converse County District Attorney's Office who responded via email, *All your questions are being investigated by the State DCI. The answers are not now available. Like any other case, law enforcement investigates and provides the investigation to the prosecutor. Then we try to make the right decision on the facts provided.* *Know you want more, but I have no more at the present time.* We also reached out to the US Marshal's Office who declined comment about the incident at this time as it is an open investigation by the Division of Criminal Investigation.
