A 23-year-old Rolling Meadows man allegedly arrived at a home in the 100 block of South Lincoln Avenue in Aurora and “made a disparaging remark” about Ramos’ girlfriend, police said.

The woman told Ramos about the comment and he confronted the man while brandishing a pistol, police said. During the confrontation, Ramos shot the man twice in the leg.

The man was taken to a hospital to be treated for his wounds, which were not thought to be life-threatening, police said. Ramos was taken into custody and charged.

Investigators learned that Ramos has a valid FOID card and concealed-carry permit, according to police. Aurora police have submitted a request to Illinois State Police to have both revoked, arguing that Ramos poses a “clear and present danger.”

Ramos, who lives in Aurora, remains held at the Kane County Jail awaiting a bail hearing Monday morning, police said.
