JACKSON, Mich. — FOX 47 News has obtained the 911 calls from an officer-involved shooting in Jackson on January 28th.

Officers responded after receiving a 911 call about a domestic disturbance on Warwick Court at Southridge Park Townhomes in Jackson.

When officers arrived, they saw the suspect, Joey Ramirez running through the complex.

One officer was able to track Ramirez outside on of the buildings and they exchanged gunfire.

The suspect was hit and died at the scene.

The three officers involved in the shooting have been cleared and the Jackson County Prosecutor ruled the shootings as justified.

Initial reports said Officer Rose was shot, but it turned out he got a minor injury when he fell.

He returned fire and shot Ramirez in the back.

Police say Ramirez had a history of domestic violence and stalking.

He was not legally allowed to be in possession of a gun because of his felony record.

Ramirez's mother told investigators her son had diagnosed mental health problems.
