Felon Arrested After Shooting at Inhabited Hesperia Home

HESPERIA, Calif.(VVNG.com)– A 35-year-old convicted felon from Hesperia was arrested after allegedly shooting at an inhabited dwelling, authorities said.

On Wednesday, December 21, 2016, at approximately 3:58 p.m., Deputies responded to a report of shots fired inside a residence. Responding deputies established a perimeter surrounding the area.

“The suspect reportedly fired a round with a handgun into a wall inside the home before exiting the residence. No one was harmed during this incident,” stated a Sheriff’s press release.

Deputies made contact with the reporting party who reported the suspect had already fled the home prior to their arrival.

It was unclear if the suspect John Anthony Ramirez could still be in the area armed with a handgun and rifle. They later determined Ramirez had fled in his vehicle.

Deputies obtained a Ramey Warrant for the suspect’s residence located on the 17800 block of Cherry Street in Hesperia.

Ramirez was found to be a convicted felon who is restricted from possessing firearms. A search warrant was served on the suspect’s residence where suspect Ramirez was located and arrested on Thursday, December 22, 2016 at approximately 8:52 p.m.

Ramirez is currently being held in lieu of a $350,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in a Victorville courtroom on December 27th at 12:30 p.m.
