Apparent Drug Overdose Kills Goetz Shooting Victim 27 Years Later

One of four teenagers wounded by New York City subway gunman Bernhard Goetz has died of an apparent drug overdose 27 years to the day after that notorious shooting.

Forty-five-year-old James Ramseur was found dead in a Bronx motel room Thursday.

The Daily News reports that two empty prescription pill bottles were found next to the bed with their labels scratched off.

Ramseur was one of four teens shot by Goetz on a subway train on Dec. 22, 1984.

Goetz said the teens tried to rob him. He was acquitted at trial of all charges except illegal weapons possession.

Ramseur fell into a coma after the shooting and underwent multiple surgeries

He was released from prison last year after serving 25 years for rape.
