Suspect in 5-year-old’s shooting death claims alibi

BELOIT -- One of the four men accused in the shooting death a year ago of 5-year-old Austin Ramos Jr., says he has an alibi.

Sergio Ortiz-Raygoza’s attorney claims that his client was in Iowa at the time of the shooting, and that witnesses can corroborate, according to WCLO.

Ortiz’s trial has been postponed until the middle of July.

Ramos Jr. was shot and killed about 7 p.m. Friday, Jan. 22, near the intersection of Prairie Avenue and Shopiere Road in Beloit.

Ramos was a passenger in a car driven by his father, Austin Ramos Sr., when another vehicle pulled alongside and opened fire. Ramos was shot in the abdomen and died a short time later at Beloit Memorial Hospital of "firearm-related trauma," according to the Rock County medical examiner’s office during that time.

Four suspects, Sergio Ortiz-Raygoza, 23; Eric Salazar-Mota, 21; Issac W. Torres, 24; and Hugo Martinez, 18, were charged with first-degree intentional homicide. The four suspects have since pleaded not guilty.
