Westchester man charged in May shooting



WHITE PLAINS – A Port Chester man has been arraigned before Westchester
County Court Judge Susan Cacace in connection with the shooting of another
man in May.

A grand jury had earlier indicted Ramiro Ulises Escobar Gonzalez on charges
of attempted murder, assault and two counts of criminal possession of
a weapon, all as felonies.

Prosecutors allege that just before 10 p.m. on May 17, outside 25 Waterfront
Place in Port Chester, Gonzales and the victim were talking over a beer.
During the conversation, Gonzalez allegedly pulled a gun and fired three
shots at the victim, striking him in the chest. The victim called 911.

Port Chester Police later arrested Gonzalez at his apartment.

The victim was hospitalized for several weeks before being released.
