Sergio Carranza Ramos, the man suspected of killing two people early Tuesday morning at a Pajaro bar, turned himself in that night at Watsonville Police Department.
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office released two photos of Ramos, who lives in Watsonville, a description of his vehicle and its license plate number around 4pm Tuesday. Four hours later, at 8:07pm, Ramos was in custody for two counts of homicide.
Currently, the Sheriff’s Office believes no further suspects are outstanding.
Monterey County Undersheriff Keith Boyd said deputies responded to El Torero Restaurant and Bar, 540 Salinas Road, just after 1am for a report of a shooting.
Deputies found a man dead from an apparent gunshot wound. Three women, also with gunshot wounds, were taken to the hospital where one of them, 36 years old of San Jose, later died.
The two-story building, with a string of apartments across the second floor that stands across Salinas Road from the Pajaro railroad yard, was surrounded by strands of yellow crime scene tape with a Sheriff’s deputy stationed outside throughout the day Tuesday.
The Monterey County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to seek the public’s assistance. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective C. Zarate at 755.3809 or Detective Sgt. Kennedy at 755.3773.
The California Highway Patrol and Watsonville Police assisted in the investigation.
