Investigation continues into Modesto officer-involved shooting

The investigation into an officer-involved shooting that left one suspect injured remains under investigation in Modesto, according to the Modesto Police Department 

At approximately 9 a.m. Monday, bail bond agents were in the 1700 block of Oakdale Road watching 38-year-old Jason Boyd Perkins, who failed to appear on burglary and theft of a firearm warrants out of Tuolumne County. There was also an additional warrant Perkins had out of Turlock for assault on a peace officer with a firearm, evading, and auto theft, police said.

At that time, the agents determined he was being dangerous and possibly armed.

Two officers responded to the area and found Perkins inside a vehicle parked in front of a bank. During the initial contact, an officer-involved shooting occurred. The circumstances leading up to the shooting are under investigation, police said. No other details were released about the incident.

Perkins was transported to a local hospital where he remains in stable condition. The officer involved, Sergeant Jerry Ramar, a 15-year law enforcement veteran, was placed on paid administrative leave, which is a standard procedure.
