Man arrested in connection with slaying of Sacramento officer


SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KCRA) — Officials have identified the man arrested in connection with gunning down a 26-year-old officer in north Sacramento on Wednesday.

Adel Sambrano Ramos, 45, was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail, authorities said.

He is facing a single felony murder charge and is not eligible for bail, according to online court records. He was booked just before 6 a.m. Thursday.

Ramos surrendered to police shortly before 2 a.m. after an hours-long standoff.

The events unfolded Wednesday afternoon after officers got reports of a disturbance between a man and a woman. Police responded to a home near Edgewater Road and Redwood Avenue to help the woman gather some belongings.

Several officers were at the scene with the woman when Ramos entered the home around 6:10 p.m. and started shooting with a rifle, police said.

O’Sullivan was then shot and went down in a yard.

Police said the other officers were forced to take cover and couldn’t get to O’Sullivan. The woman was able to get out safely, police said.

An armored vehicle was called to the scene to help get O’Sullivan and arrived around 6:50 p.m. Police said officers were able to rescue her at 6:59 p.m.

O’Sullivan was then taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where she died.

According to court records, Ramos was wanted for failing to appear in court on a misdemeanor battery charge involving a minor. A bench warrant for his arrest was issued June 10.

His next court appearance is slated for Monday.
