The Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff has identified 30-year-old Angelo Ramirez of San Pablo as the suspect in a fatal shooting in Rodeo, California. (See related article).
On April 24, 2020, at about 7:52 PM, Bay Station Deputy Sheriffs were dispatched to a report that someone was shot at the 1000 block of Mariposa Avenue. Deputies arrived finding a man on the street suffering from a gunshot wound. The fire department and an ambulance responded. The man was later pronounced deceased at the scene. The victim was identified as 24-year-old Olajawon Walker of San Pablo.
Detectives investigating the case later identified Ramirez as the suspect. The case was presented to the Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office which charged him with murder. A warrant was issued for Ramirez’s arrest.
It is believed that Ramirez fled the area after the murder. He is currently being sought by the Sheriff’s Office and the U.S. Marshals Service. It is believed Ramirez may be receiving assistance in avoiding apprehension. Anyone associated with harboring Ramirez may be arrested for being an accessory to murder after the fact.
Ramirez should be considered armed and dangerous and should not be approached by the public. If he is seen, please call 911 immediately. Anyone with any information on this case is asked to contact Sheriff’s Office Dispatch at (925) 646-2441 or the Investigation Division at (925) 313-2600.
