**********************Orginal Update*******************************
Date: Friday, August 1, 2014
Time: 5:30PM
Location: 9000 block Rosehedge Drive, Pico Rivera
Victim: 54-yr-old man (deceased), 60-yr-old woman
Suspect: Cedric Ramirez H/24 (deceased)
Unit: Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau (Lt. Corina)

Sheriff’s Homicide Detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the deputy-involved shooting that occurred in the 9000 block Rosehedge Drive, Pico Rivera.

Detectives have learned that the suspect, 24-year-old, Cedric Ramirez, a resident of Pico Rivera, was a parolee at large, wanted for two felony warrants, Ex-felon In Possession of a Firearm and Taking a Vehicle Without the Owner’s Consent. When deputies initially located him at a residence in the 9000 block of Reichling Avenue, Pico Rivera, he fled the location on foot in an attempt to evade the deputies.

He entered the backyard of the victims’ residence where he exchanged gunfire with the deputies. Ramirez then broke into the victims’ home through a window and, in an attempt by the deputies to get the residents out of the home, a second exchange of gunfire occurred and the male victim was hit by gunfire. The deputies rescued the 54-year old victim who was slumped over in the doorway, but he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ramirez then barricaded himself in the house, taking the 60-yr-old woman as a hostage. After an extended standoff, a Special Enforcement Bureau, special weapons team, entered the location which ended with the fatal shooting of the suspect; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

The special weapons team rescued the 60-year-old woman and she was taken to a local hospital and examined. She did not suffer any injuries.

Ramirez’s firearm was recovered at the location.

There is no further information at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

Whenever an Officer-Involved Shooting occurs involving Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, and it results in a fatality of a suspect, multiple independent investigations immediately begin at the scene. These include separate investigations by the Offices of the L.A. Co. District Attorney and the L.A. Co. Coroner, in addition to Sheriff's Homicide Bureau and Internal Affairs Bureau. Attorneys with the Los Angeles Office of Independent Review also respond to the scene, and have full access to the facts known to the sheriff's department throughout every phase of these thorough investigations. Once concluded, every aspect of the shooting is reviewed by the Sheriff's Executive Force Review Committee.
