A man is accused of threatening his wife at gunpoint.
Officers were dispatched to 756 Randy Drive on a possible suicide threat last Saturday. Before they arrived, dispatch stated Marshall Ramos, Jr., threatened his wife with a gun.
The wife and her daughter left the scene before multiple deputies arrived and formed a perimeter around the house.
The SWAT Team arrived, entered the house and arrested Marshall without incident.
The wife told authorities she and Marshall are in the midst of a divorce and she had not been staying at the house for a month. She said she arrived there that day with movers to get furniture. While she was trying to move furniture, she says Marshall confronted her about her new boyfriend and displayed a handgun.
Then, she says Marshall picked up a small puppy by the neck using a leash without a collar, cutting off the airway of the puppy. That is when the wife went outside holding her three-year-old daughter.
She says Marshall came outside and pointed a gun in her face and said, “You better call the cops because I’m either going to kill you or myself.” Marshall is accused of pointing the gun toward the neighbor’s house and firing it, saying “she better get back in the house,” which she did.
While Marshall was in the master bedroom, the wife ran outside and loaded her daughter into her car seat and started the car. Marshall ran outside, pointed the gun at her through the car’s windshield, and instructed her to turn the car off and get out.
While they talked, investigators say Marshall calmed down and made his way to the back shed, giving his wife the chance to leave.
Marshall was transported to the McLennan County Jail and was charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon, Unlawful Restraint, Endangering a Child and Cruelty to Animals/Family Violence.
