Who was Jaden Ramos? La Quinta High Senior Killed at Post-Prom Party

Jaden Ramos, 17, was a La Quinta High School senior who was shot and killed during a post-prom house party on Sunday.

Two Coachella Valley teenagers, Elijah Alfredo Martinez, 18, of Bermuda Dunes, and Dominick Cruz Venecia, 18, were arrested for the shooting.

Riverside County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to the 79000 block of Paseo Del Rey in La Quinta for a report of a shooting.

They discovered a 17-year-old male with a gunshot wound had been taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced deceased.

In the course of their investigation, they developed Martinez and Cruz as suspects and booked them into the John Benoit Detention Center in Indio on suspicion of murder.

Both are being held on $1m bail.

“As graduation approaches on Thursday and senior activities take place on campus, we will remain ready to assist our students during this tragic time while working with law enforcement in any way possible,” O’Mara, the La Quinta High principal, wrote in his message to families.

“Please hold your children close and help them through this very difficult time,”
