‘Sometimes things happen’: NYC ‘good kid,’ 14, faces attempted murder rap for allegedly shooting at cops

In yet another shooting that is being attributed to a teenager, 14-year-old Isaiah Ramos has been charged with attempted murder for allegedly shooting at two NYPD officers in their unmarked police car in Staten Island.

Ramos allegedly approached two uniformed officers who were driving in an unmarked cruiser near Prince Street and Vanderbilt Avenue on Saturday night and opened fire. Fortunately for the officers, Ramos is a lousy shot. Police stated the teen missed the vehicle and both of the officers, according to The New York Post.

After firing his handgun, Ramos ran. Officers quickly caught up with him and he was taken into custody with the handgun in his possession.

“It didn’t appear clear that the suspect knew that they were police,” a source within the police told The Post.

Ramos, who wasn’t immediately identified due to his age, was charged with two felony counts of criminal possession of a loaded weapon, obstructing governmental administration and criminal possession of a weapon.

“He was squeaky clean until last night,” The Post’s source said. “He debuted with that one.”

It’s a fact his defense attorney Michael Harding reiterated when he asked for leniency for the Eagle Academy student on Sunday.

Instead, the judge hit the teen with attempted murder charges, attempted assault, and carrying an illegal weapon and ordered him to be held on $300,000 cash bail. He is due back in court on Tuesday.

Outside the court, Ramos’s aunt insisted the young teen is not a bad boy.

“He’s a good kid,” she said. “But sometimes things happen.”

The incident marks what is becoming a disturbing trend among teenage boys.

In February, a 16-year-old New York boy was charged with attempted murder and his 17-year-old accomplice was charged with attempted murder and assault on a police officer with a deadly weapon after the duo allegedly shot an off-duty NYPD officer in the foot.

In May, 18-year-old Payton Gendron walked into a Topps supermarket in Buffalo, N.Y., and opened fire, slaughtering ten unsuspecting shoppers.

Ten days later, Salvador Ramos, also 18, shot 19 elementary school children and two teachers in Uvalde, Texas. A fellow high school student, 17-year-old Keanna Baxter, described Ramos as unpredictable and violent and said, “he always had this kind of eerie sense about him.”

And just last week, 19-year-old Rodolfo V. Aceves was taken into custody in San Antonio, Texas, after he allegedly told a female coworker he wanted to commit a mass shooting at the Amazon facility where they worked.

“It would be a good idea to pull the fire alarm and have all employees exit the building and to commit a mass shooting,” he said according to the arrest report.
