GREENBURGH, N.Y. -- Johuan Ramos, wanted for a possible shooting and domestic abduction at gunpoint Monday morning in the Bronx, was taken into custody by a Westchester County police officer and a New York State police sergeant from Troop T around 1:45 p.m. Monday.

Both the officer and sergeant were checking the area of Heath Place in the Town of Greenburgh when they found the suspect hiding near a residence, said Trooper David Howard, a spokesman for the state police.

Ramos, 28, of the Bronx, was wanted for crashing his vehicle during the abduction after passing through the Yonkers toll barrier on I-87 around 5 a.m. this morning, with the victim inside, said Major Robin H. Benziger, Troop K commander.

When police arrived, gunshot damage was observed on the vehicle windshield. Ramos fled on foot.

The unidentified female victim is being treated at a local hospital, Howard said.
