Authorities in Oklahoma are cooperating with ICE as they investigate the fatal shooting of a mother of one in the state.
Canadian County Jail recently approved an ICE detainer for 33-year-old Ramon Ontiveros, who is currently being held on a first-degree murder charge. The Mexican national reportedly admitted to authorities that he is responsible for firing the gun that killed 28-year-old Paige Gomer.
The shooting took place on a highway last week outside Oklahoma City, but police have yet to release a possible motive for the crime.
The victim’s family and friends are now saying they want justice for Gomer as well as her four-year-old daughter.
“We were supposed to meet up and just kind of catch up on old times, and I could never find the time –it just shows you live each day like it is the last,” said Sosha Christmas, a friend of victim. “I just hope that he never gets out, I hope he never gets to see freedom again.”
The Canadian County Sheriff’s Office said, “it is still actively involved in this investigation, where an American citizen died at the hands of an illegal alien.”
