Second officer involved shooting in 2 days

Another violent crime and another violent criminal down.

Officer wounds suspect

Authorities were investigating the second officer-involved shooting in two days after a patrolman shot a gun-wielding robbery suspect early Sunday at an apartment complex east of San Antonio College.

Officer William Karmen — who has been on the force for a year and a half — was not injured. The suspect, 22-year-old Jesse Ramon, was taken to a local hospital in critical condition.

A third person, who police believe Ramon beat and shot in the chest during a violent robbery involving two other accomplices, was taken to Brooke Army Medical Center, where he later died, according to a police incident report. The name of the victim was not released Sunday.
