Victim's family speaks out following Copper Mountain Drive shooting

Police have not released information on who shot Ramsey or if his death is being investigated as a homicide.

CORPUS CHRISTI (KIII NEWS) - A Corpus Christi family is mourning the loss of two brothers after a home disturbance turned deadly on November 9. 

44-year-old Frederick Ramsey died of several gunshot wounds, and his 39-year-old brother Frederson Ramsey was arrested at the scene.

The Ramsey family is asking for justice to be served by the person who shot their loved one and the release of Frederson.

"That was my father figure. I had no father growing up all I knew was him and uncle Clyde," niece of Frederick Ramsey said. 

"My dad died right in my uncle's arms. He doesn't know what he's in jail for," daughter Fatima Ramsey said. 

Police said Frederick was shot trying to leave the scene of a disturbance on the 7000 block of Copper Mountain Drive.

Investigators say Frederick, Frederson, and 32-year-old Ronald Richards entered the house where there was an argument, and that's when Frederick was shot and the three men took off in a car but crashed into a nearby house.

Frederick Ramsey died at the hospital while Frederson and Richards were arrested for burglary of a habitation charges.

"I will never be able to hug my brother again. I will never be able to fuss, talk to him again. I will never be able to do anything with my brother ever again," sister Sophia said.

Ramsey's family said there is more to the story and the wrong person is behind bars.

Police have not released information on who shot Ramsey or if his death is being investigated as a homicide.

A spokesperson with the Corpus Christi Police Department said just because no arrest has been made for the shooting does not mean the investigation is over.
