The Yakima County Coroner’s Office has found that the death of a 28-year-old Sunnyside man Sunday was a homicide.
Victor J. Ramos died of a gunshot wound to his torso, Chief Deputy Coroner Marshall Slight said following a Tuesday autopsy.
Sunnyside police found Ramos with gunshot wounds in the 1200 block of Roosevelt Court on Sunday and performed CPR until medics arrived, according to a Sunnyside Police Department release.
Ramos was taken to Astria Sunnyside Hospital, where he died, the release said.
Police believe the shooting was gang-related. Anyone with information about the incident is being asked to call police at 509-836-6200.
Ramos’ killing is the fifth homicide in Yakima County this year and the second in Sunnyside.
