The decedent was shot on 7th Street, between Berendo Street and New Hampshire Avenue in Koreatown, at around 10:30 p.m. on Tuesday.
The shooting happened when Ramirez was in a car with his friend. The story is that another man approached them with a gun and attempted to rob them. When they refused to hand over their belongings, the suspect opened fire and shot Ramirez in the head.
Ramirez was on the passenger side. The driver then took off and flagged down cops outside a 7-Eleven on West Olympic Boulevard in the Pico-Union neighborhood. He was attempting to take Ramirez to the hospital, but Ramirez had already died.
