Failed Murder-Suicide Attempt by Naval Officer

Posted on

This morning, on the Northwest side of San Antonio, Senior Chief Petty Officer Paul Zuriat Ramirez got into a fight with his wife and shot her in the face, then walked into another room and  killed himself.  Their four children were all at home when the shooting occurred but in this case there is good news.  The children’s mother has been transported to an area hospital and is expected to survive.

Paul Zuriat Ramirez’s mother thinks that he was suffering from PTSD which often leads to situations like this, unfortunately it won’t bring him back, or erase this memory from his wife, or children’s lives. The police are going to look into the suggestion of PTSD and evaluate from there what may have cause this man to go off the edge like that.
