Police say the victim was suffering from gunshot wounds, and was rushed to the hospital where she died from her injuries. The violent crimes unit responded to investigate the case and determine who was responsible for the shooting.

During the investigation, detectives developed information that led them to 20 year old Favian Ramirez. Police say Ramirez made a purchase at the business and then shot the clerk. He grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash from the register and fled the scene.

Authorities say the key to locating Ramirez was the vehicle he was driving. Police say he was test driving the car from a used car dealership during the incident. The dealership assisted in identifying Ramirez.

SWAT teams, detectives, and other specialized units located the suspect in the vehicle leaving a residence in Ceres. Ramirez attempted to flee the area when he spotted authorities. Authorities were able to locate and arrest him after setting up a perimeter near Central and Pleasant Avenues.

Ramirez was booked into the Stanislaus County Jail without bail on murder and robbery charges.
