Miami-Dade Police Director, Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez, is currently in “stable condition” after sustaining a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head on Sunday. Hillsborough Country Sheriff, Chad Chronister, confirmed that evidence and interviews strongly suggest it was a self-inflicted incident. While Ramirez faces a challenging road to recovery with multiple surgeries, officials are optimistic about his survival.
A press release issued by the Miami-Dade Police Department informed the public that Director Ramirez had undergone surgery and is now in stable condition. Grateful for the community’s support and prayers, the department conveyed its appreciation for the extended MDPD family’s solidarity during this trying time.
The incident took place during the Florida Sheriffs Association’s annual summer conference in Tampa, where Ramirez was attending. Following a domestic dispute with a woman, he was asked to leave the hotel where he was staying.

Tampa Police responded to thirdhand information alleging that Ramirez had pointed a gun at himself. Upon entering his hotel room, Ramirez claimed to have been in an argument but denied any intent to harm himself or others. The woman involved also expressed no safety concerns to the officers.
