Sheriff’s officials remain at the scene of a shooting in the 900 block of E Street Thursday afternoon.

Deputies responding to the call found an unidentified victim lying in the ditch bleeding in front of 945 E St., said Sgt. Greg Rylaarsdam with the sheriff’s Ramona station.

The victim is white and possibly in his twenties. Paramedics took him to Palomar Medical Center.

Based on what witnesses told officers, the shooting victim may have been trying to get into 933 E St., Rylaarsdam said. It is uncertain if the victim shot himself or if he was shot. Officers found a black semiautomatic handgun close to where the victim was found, said Rylaarsdam.

At least two men and one woman went voluntarily to the sheriff’s Ramona station to give statements and be interviewed, he said, noting that no one has been arrested.

“We’re trying to put everything together,” he said.

    As the prisons empty out, and more felons are released, this kind of scumbag behavior will be more and more common. Open your eyes, law abiding citizens of Ramona, the gang filth ghetto has arrived in our town, and they seem to be thriving. When people are getting shot in broad daylight you know the roaches have left the sewer. Just wondering if our quiet country town has become a dumping ground. Look around Ramona, and wake up. Any thoughts?

      This is true, and the other problem is when some one is just protecting there home and family from an armed intruder they get treated like criminals by the police for this….after this armed idiot invaded there home the cops invaded it and ransacked it, leaving a mess for them to also deal with…..the simple fact of this whole mess is, the guy was coming into there home with a gun and he got shot! He got what he deserved.

    I wouldn’t say gang filth ghetto’s. Its more about the issue we’ve always faced hear in this town, drugs. I look around and it seems like there are so many “tweekers” that are around this town. People feening for drugs are willing to go to any extremities to get them. Even braking into peoples homes which has been happening overwhelmingly in last two months.
