JOLIET, IL —  Joskar Sebastian Ramos, 18, of Joliet, is accused of aggravated unlawful use of a weapon, obstructing justice, and illegal possession of ammunition.  However, at this time, he is not facing any charges in connection with the Halloween shooting, according to the Will County Sheriff’s Office.

Ramos had an active Will County warrant for unrelated weapons offenses committed while he was a juvenile.

Detectives obtained a search warrant on Wednesday for Ramos’ residence due to that warrant.  Deputies set up a perimeter of his residence around 9:45 a.m. and attempted to serve the warrant. They announced their presence several times while outside the home.

They then observed Ramos look out of a second story window and then disappear from view.  As deputies continued to try to get Ramos to come to the door, one deputy noticed a gun outside the window on the first floor’s roof.  The detectives then forced their way into the house, after which, Ramos began to respond and obey commands as a result.

Deputies took a semi-automatic 9mm Glock that was on the first-floor roof as evidence.  Several items of evidentiary value were also taken from the residence and are currently being analyzed

Ramos was questioned about his involvement in the Halloween party shooting at the Sheriff’s Investigations Unit. 

Ramos is being held on a $1 million bond at the moment.
