HARTFORD — U.S. Marshals said a man wanted in a double shooting in Pennsylvan­ia that injured his former girlfriend and her son was apprehende­d in Hartford on Friday.

Issac Ramos-Perez was found living in a “makeshift apartment” in an industrial building on Meadow

Street, said Supervisor Deputy Matthew Duffy.

A cot had been set up in the building, which appeared to have at one time been used as an automotive repair or sign-making workshop, Duffy said.

Ramos-Perez was unarmed at the time of his arrest, according to Duffy. He was found with a Bible in his hand. He was arrested by members of the Connecticu­t U.S. Marshal Violent Fugitive Task Force and the Hartford Police Department, Duffy said in a news release.

The brutal doubleshoo­ting just days before Christmas received heavy media coverage in Pennsylvan­ia.

Law enforcemen­t officials allege that on the morning of Dec. 23, Ramos-Perez went to the home of his former girlfriend in York City, Pa., and shot her and her son multiple times.

“The shooting left the son paralyzed with permanent facial injuries,” the news release from the U.S.

Marshals said Friday morning.

Police also believe Ramos-Perez threatened family members of the victims that he would “finish the job” and kill anyone who helped the two victims.

The marshals said Ramos-Perez was transporte­d to the Hartford Police Department, where he was processed and charged as a fugitive from justice.

He awaits extraditio­n back to Pennsylvan­ia, where he faces two counts of attempted homicide and aggravated assault with a firearm, marshals said.

Ramos-Perez will also be charged in Pennsylvan­ia with being a felon in possession of a firearm and terroristi­c threats, the marshals said.
