North side standoff ends with arrest of four suspects: SAPD

A prolonged standoff at a northwest-side apartment complex has come to an end after San Antonio police took four individuals into custody on a variety of outstanding warrants, including a suspect, Elijah Ramos, wanted for the alleged killing of a 14-year-old in December of 2020. SAPD Sergeant Washington Moscoso has confirmed that the other individuals taken into custody include Augustin Ramos, Jabriel Carter and Amanda Beltran, who was being monitored by the police due to an alleged aggravated robbery.

The ordeal began shortly after Beltran’s arrival at The Maya apartments near Northeast Loop 410 and Harry Wurzbach around 6 p.m. Wednesday. At that time, the police officers monitoring Beltran realized there were three additional individuals inside the apartment, all of whom were suspects tied to various crimes, including aggravated robbery, burglary of habitation, assault, and drug-related offenses.

Police immediately contained the suspects in the apartment and, over time, attempted to get them to surrender peacefully. SWAT teams and police negotiators arrived on the scene during the early hours of the morning on Thursday and attempted to negotiate with the suspects. However, after no progress was made, chemical agents were deployed into the building. This tactic worked, and shortly after the chemical agents were deployed, the suspects emerged from the apartment.

The standoff shut down Northeast Loop 410 and forced the brief lockdown of a nearby school but ended without incident. Elijah Ramos, who was taken into custody, was wanted by the SAPD in relation to the killing of a 14-year-old San Antonio boy in December of 2020.

Officials said that Ramos shot and killed Angel Jerry Yanez after the pair had some kind of argument. At the time, Angel, a Harlandale ISD student, was walking his dog when he was killed. An SAPD spokesperson stated Thursday night that it felt good to bring justice to the victim’s family as Elijah Ramos was being transported to the Bexar County jail.
