Rodriguez-Rosado pulled out a 9 mm pistol and shot Montes De Oca Ramirez four times, killing him, prosecutors said. A witness called 911 and stated that shots were fired outside the bar, and that they saw a red color Ford Edge SUV traveling southbound on Carleton Avenue away from the scene.

The East Islip resident then drove to a gas station parking lot at the corner of Union Boulevard and Saxon Avenue in Bay Shore, prosecutors said. When undercover police officers spotted the red SUV, they pulled into the gas station parking lot and attempted to block Rodriguez-Rosado’s vehicle from leaving.

Rodriguez-Rosado struck the undercover police vehicle as he escaped from the gas station, officials said.

He then fled northbound on Saxon Avenue while the undercover police vehicle followed. The pursuit continued onto southbound Commack Road where Rodriguez-Rosado began to drive erratically down the center of the road toward oncoming police vehicles.

The undercover police vehicle then struck Rodriguez-Rosado’s vehicle on the rear driver’s side wheel, causing it to spin and come to a stop. Rodriguez-Rosado was then placed under arrest, officials said.

The 9 mm pistol was later discovered that same evening by members of the K-9 Unit of the Suffolk County Police Department, about one mile away from where Rodriguez-Rosado was

Detectives also recovered multiple surveillance video recordings from around the restaurant that captured the homicide as it was occurring.

“This defendant took the life of Mr. Montes De Oca Ramirez in cold blood and then attempted to flee without answering for his actions,” said Tierney. “Thankfully, because of the amazing work of Suffolk County police officers, this defendant was quickly arrested after leading police on a high-speed violent chase. Moreover, a K-9 unit located the murder weapon and detectives found video recordings of the murder. This was textbook policing.”

Prior to this case, Rodriguez-Rosado been convicted of first-degree attempted robbery in 2016, and sentenced to two years in prison followed by three years of post-release supervision, officials said.

Rodriguez-Rosado is scheduled to next appear in court on July 10. He faces 17 years to life in prison at sentencing, Tierney’s office said.
