Man Killed During Cannabis Grow Burglary Identified – SFGate

Oakland police on Tuesday released the name of a man fatally shot during a burglary of a cannabis growing operation on Nov. 3, along with additional details about a spree of crimes that night.

Oakland resident Jonathan Torres Ramirez, 20, was shot when officers interrupted a burglary of the grow business in a commercial building in the 1400 block of 92nd Avenue, police said.

„OPD wants our community to know that it is tragic and traumatic whenever a life is lost in our city. We recognize that any time there is an (officer-involved-shooting), regardless of the events that precipitates it, the loss of life impacts the families and members of our community,” the department said in a news release. „Our department extends sympathy and support to the family and community members suffering the loss of a loved one.”

Ramirez was shot as he and others tried to flee on foot and in vehicles when officers arrived about 10:15 p.m., police said.

Four officers suffered injuries at the scene. Three of the officers were struck by fleeing vehicles and required hospitalization, police said.

At least 12 people were arrested and nine firearms were recovered, police said.

The fatal shooting is being investigated by the department’s Criminal Investigation, and Internal Affairs divisions, and independent investigations are being conducted by the Independent investigations are also being conducted by the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office and the Community Police Review Agency, police said.

That same night the department „responded to multiple incidents where roving teams of armed robbers caravanned across our city and the region targeting businesses with high-value consumer goods, including cannabis businesses, pharmacies, electronics stores, and other retail merchants,” police said.

The department said it responded received 88 priority calls between 9 p.m. Tuesday and 3 a.m. Wednesday, officials said, including shootings, robberies, burglaries and reported kidnappings.

The volume of priority calls stretched resources and prevented response to other urgent needs, police said.

The department said it „encourages residents and business owners to consider installing security cameras as well as alarms. These technologies can both deter crime and help solve crimes after they occur.”
