On Thursday September 7, 2017 at approximately 11:00 p.m., the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office was advised of a shooting which occurred in the 8000 block of Ramsey Road south of Sierra Vista.
Deputies arrived at the residence and discovered a 26 year old male subject on the property with a gunshot injury. The man was airlifted to a Tucson hospital where he remains in critical condition.
The resident, a 69 year old female, had reported a burglary earlier in the day where she stated she returned home to find it had been broken into with a door damaged and unspecified items taken. The woman called back at 11:05 p.m. and advised that a man wearing dark clothing had attempted to break into the home and she shot at him.
The investigation is being continued by the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office.
