Custodial Death Report – Beaumont Police Department

From the Texas Attorney Generals Website:

“Officers responded to the “Temptations Club” in the 5900 blk. of College St., in ref. to a call that a patron that had been told to leave the club after causing a disturbance, and had returned and was firing a weapon into the building, while the building was still occupied with patrons and employees.

Upon first responding officer’s arrival, the officer observed Manuel Ramirez Jr. actively engaged in the process of firing a pistol into the area of the business. The officer engaged the suspect and the suspect refused to comply with officer’s commands. The officer fired to stop the continuous threat of Ramirez continuing to shoot into the business and in the direction of the officer.

Ramirez survived the initial incident and has been hospitalized since. Ramirez received approximately 39 surgeries through the date and time of his death.

An autopsy was ordered and results will be pending.”
