Emergency crews arrived at Syracuse Sand Dunes Park around 4:50 a.m. Sunday morning for a reported shooting. Authorities did not find the suspected gunman initially, but located 40-year-old David Ramirez about 20 minutes after the initial 911 call and placed him under arrest.

 

Ramirez was arrested on three counts of Attempted First Degree Murder, eight counts of Criminal Discharge of a Firearm, and one count of Criminal Possession of a Firearm by a Convicted Felon.

 

There were no injuries reported from the shooting, and the statement released from the sheriff’s office did not specify who was being targeted.

 

The case has been turned over to the Hamilton County district attorney’s office for review.

 

Here’s the full statement made on the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Facebook Page:
