A Danbury man has accepted a plea deal in the manslaughter case stemming from the September 2019 shooting death of 33-year-old Jason Hoffman. David Ramos pleaded guilty to a number of crimes on Monday under the Alford doctrine, not admitting guilt. The shooting happened in the Sterling Woods condo complex where Ramos was living with his mother. The 37-year-old said he didn't mean to shoot his friend, and that the gun accidentally discharged. The gun was was found in a storm drain behind the condo and had the serial number scratched off, something Ramos said happened before he bought the gun. An investigation determined that New Milford resident Nikos Chelioudakis sold the handgun and the 37-year old is facing charges related to the sale. Two others were also arrested in the case for making a false statement and witness intimidation.
