Oct. 18, 2023 By Bill Parry

A Brooklyn man was arrested Tuesday and charged at the 105th Precinct in Queens Village with attempted murder and a slew of other violent crimes for shooting a man in the face in Springfield Gardens on the morning of Monday, Oct. 2.

Pedro Ramos, 19, of Stockholm Street in Bushwick, was taken into custody just after noon on Oct. 17 after detectives determined that he was the suspected gunman who got into an argument with a 24-year-old man in front of a deli located 147-03 Guy R. Brewer Blvd., near 146th Terrace, at around 9:30 a.m. on Oct. 2. The dispute escalated into violence when Ramos allegedly pulled out a handgun and fired a shot that struck the victim in the left side of his jaw, police said. Ramos ran from the crime scene on 146th Terrace.

EMS responded and rushed the victim to Jamaica Hospital Medical Center, where he was treated and released, according to an NYPD spokesman, who could not provide further detail on how the arrest went down or a motive for the shooting.

Ramos was booked at the 105th Precinct and charged with attempted murder, assault, attempted assault, reckless endangerment, criminal facilitation and criminal possession of a loaded firearm, according to the NYPD.

The 105th Precinct has reported seven shooting incidents so far in 2023, 11 fewer than the 18 reported at the same point last year, a decline of 61.1%, according to the most recent CompStat report. Assaults, however, are up in 2023, with 356 incidents during the period, an increase of 5%, according to CompStat.
