Man charged with shooting his friend appears in court
DANBURY, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut man charged with fatally shooting his friend at his condominium has made his first court appearance.
The Danbury News-Times reports that 33-year-old David Ramos appeared in Superior Court in Danbury on Thursday to face charges including first-degree manslaughter in the shooting death of 33-year-old Jason Hoffman.
He did not enter a plea and was held on $250,000 bond.
Police responded to reports of a shooting at Ramos’ Danbury condo a little after 6 a.m. Sept. 4. They found Hoffman with a single gunshot wound to his chest.
Ramos was arrested Wednesday after authorities found him hiding at a friend’s apartment.
Authorities have not released a possible motive.
A message was left with the public defender’s office, which is defending Ramos.
