Jesus Take the Wheel: Brooklyn Man Shoots Wife in Public

- By Bossip Staff

22 year old Kaiden Ramsay was shot by her husband, Lenox Ramsay, on a busy Brooklyn street Tuesday. The couple has only been married for eleven months.

Sources say Kaiden always lived in fear of her husband who had a very bad temper:

“She’s been afraid, so she hasn’t been complaining to us about him being abusive, said her uncle Ewan Clarke, 32. He’s the type of guy who punches holes in the wall,” Clarke said. “He gives messages of intimidation so she’s afraid to say anything.”

Cops say Ramsay ambushed his wife, who moved out of their home three days earlier, in front of Medgar Evers College and chased her down Carroll St., grabbing her wrist and throwing her into traffic. Frantic to escape, Kaidan Ramsay tried to jump into a passing car and used her phone to call her sister for help.

“We heard her say, ‘No! No! No!’ and we heard her screaming for help,” said Clarke, who was with Kaidan Ramsay’s sister, Shelly Ann Riley, when she got the desperate call. She said “He has a gun and ‘I’ve been shot.'”

His wife never filed a domestic incident report against him, but Kaidan Ramsay briefly left her drug-dealing husband this spring after he beat her, her father said. “She had bruises on her body [and] she came to stay with me,” said Herbert Riley, 54, a mechanic. “But he promised he’d change so she went back.”

After seeing a gun in their Brownsville home, Kaidan Ramsay finally decided to report the abuse and went to the 67th Precinct Sunday – just two days before the shooting – in order to file a report, her family said. Ramsay’s family said they were turned away by cops for not having any evidence of violence, but an NYPD spokesman said there were no records that she visited the precinct.

Investigators said Lenox Ramsay fired six shots at his wife – including a pair as he stood above her wounded body – and hit her twice. One of the bullets shattered her left shoulder bone and lodged in her collarbone.

“It’s painful, unnerving and shocking,” said Herbert Riley. “We want him to be put away for the rest of his life.”

Lenox was arraigned yesterday on multiple charges, including attempted murder and assault. Kaiden is still hospitalized.

  • http://bossip TIABABY09

    @ hannibal,i used to really like you,but you are just an ASS!!!! n e wayz,this is the EXACT reason i JUST had my ex-fiance put way for 2n a half years. when they sentenced him,i felt like dying,i felt terrible,but after hearing the prosecuter re-read my statement at the end of the trial,i went back to that day that it all happened and i remembered how horrified i was for myself and my 3 year old son.Instead of turning to me and apologizing for his animal behavior towards me for the past 5 months that he’s been assaulting and cheating,he lied to the prosecuter and told her thati was Lying,he never hit me and i made it all up because i was mad about his babymother,THAT is REALLY what did it for me.He is a coward,punk,lying ass,2 timing,backstabbing bastard,but i really hope he reflects on it all while he is in there for the sake of his children.He also has to do a year of alchohol and abuse classes,so now,after reading this,I DNT FEEL BAD AT ALL!


    This is sad. All I can say. She left the man, she wa going on with her life. What is really sad in the REAL NEWS PAPER I WAS READING YESTERDAY. she was screaming and people were just looking, the deli guy gacve police play by play of what happened after he fired the 6th shot. She screamed, for her life while he flagged down 2 cabs the cabs stopped and the pulled off they could have called 911 on their cells. they talk on them any other time. two guys were sitting eatting one tried to help but saw the gun and went sat back down.

  • Miss B

    Very sad. Some people really just dont care nor have any belief in an higher power.

    Reminds me of news when a man got angry with his ex girlfriend/wife and got the baby a threw out the car while she’s driving. This world is going to kill itself.

  • A Drop of Wisdom

    The reason Hannibal, 6am and Marcus…(whatever the rest of his name is)….continue to post is because so many folks respond to them…stop responding to the loosers….don’t engage them. Ignoring them says way more than responding to them ever could.
