News

New details on the officer-involved shooting in East Bakersfield that happened Monday night.

It happened around 6 p.m. on Kentucky Street, near the intersection of Barlow Street.

Bakersfield Police say Detective Ryan McWilliams and Detective Isaac Aleman were staked out trying to serve a felony arrest warrant on a man also wanted for carjacking.

The officers tried to arrest  Anthony Markis Ramirez, and that’s when the officers opened fire – hitting Ramirez twice in the torso.

Paramedics rushed Ramirez to the hospital.

The 23-year-old was wanted for a number of charges including carjacking, conspiracy and participation in a criminal street gang.

And a second suspect, 23-year-old, Marinah Renae Segura, was also taken into custody and booked for carjacking and conspiracy.

This is the third officer-involved shooting for Detective Aleman and the first for Detective McWilliams.

In April 2013, the then Officer Aleman recovered from a gunshot wound to the leg, after he and his partner went to investigate suspicious men near a 7-Eleven store.

Both Detectives are placed on routine administrative leave pending a review by the Critical Incident Review Board.
