The victim said he and his friends had been having trouble with Ramirez.

He had driven by his house in a silver sedan and returned with two other men, Cardenas-Flores and Cardenas.

Cardenas pulled out a gun which prompted Ramirez to say “No, no, no,” and Cardenas responded with “(expletive) it” and began firing at the ground.

The victim then walked back to the house and was hit by Cardenas-Flores. He turned to fight Ramirez and Cardenas-Flores with a friend’s help.

The friend and Cardenas-Flores were wrestling over a stick that the victim eventually got control of and was then shot by Cardenas in the butt and knee.

The friend said that when he and the victim were winning the fight, Ramirez told Cardenas “shoot, shoot!” The three got back in the car and and left.

Cardenas was given a $100,000 cash bond, Ramirez a $75,000 cash bond and Cardenas-Flores a $50,000 cash bond in Racine County Circuit court on Wednesday.

All three of the men have a preliminary hearing set for Nov. 11 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave., online court records show.
