LONGMONT, Colo. — A Longmont man was arrested Wednesday after allegedly firing a gun at his ex-wife, the Longmont Police Department said.

Richard Ramirez, 37, allegedly fired shots at the woman and a male associate about 6:43 a.m. No one was hit by gunfire during the shooting at the apartment complex at 1200 Kimbark St., the Times-Call reported.

One bullet struck a car, another hit the ex-wife’s apartment and a third entered another nearby apartment, possibly lodging in the bed of a five-year-old girl, police said.

Ramirez faces charges of attempted murder, stalking and negligent child abuse,  among others.

Ramirez was arrested without incident at his workplace on the 500 block of South Francis Street later in the morning, according to the Times-Call. A handgun believed to have been used in the incident was recovered in a cabinet there.
