The Oakland Police Department released an image from a surveillance video on Monday of a man that they are calling a “person of interest” in connection to the homicide of 27-year-old muralist Antonio Ramos last month.

According to the press release from OPD, the suspect is approximately 6 feet tall, 20 to 29 years old, with a thin build and a dark complexion. In the image the man is wearing a dark blue Adidas track jacket and a dark colored hat with a light colored logo in the center. Investigators are interested in talking to the man about the shooting on Sept. 29 that left Ramos dead.

Ramos was working on a mural in West Oakland when he got into an altercation with a man who shot him and fled the scene, according to OPD reports. Ramos was working on the Oakland Super Heroes Mural Project in collaboration with ten other artists. The mural is one of six that is being coordinated by ArtEsteem, a branch of the Attitudinal Healing Connection, West Oakland group that promotes violence awareness through arts and education.

This is the 74th homicide of the year in Oakland and police have stepped up their efforts to track down the shooter. In collaboration with Crime Stoppers of Oakland the OPD has offered a reward of $10,000 for information that leads to the arrest of the killer. If you have any information about the case contact the OPD at 510-238-3821 or Crime Stoppers at 510-777-8572.
