Sibley Man Not Charged After Spencer Shooting

Spencer, Iowa — A Sibley man has been absolved of any wrongdoing after he shot a man in September of last year.

The Clay County Attorney’s Office says that charges will not be filed in regards to the September 1, 2017 shooting death of 30-year-old Nicolas Bandomo of Albert City.

In the early hours of September 1, 2017, the Clay County Communication Center dispatched emergency personnel for a gunshot victim in Spencer. When personnel arrived on the scene, they located the victim, who was identified as Bandomo. Bandomo was transported to the Spencer Hospital and later transferred to Avera McKennan Hospital in Sioux Falls, South Dakota where he died.

Authorities say an investigation conducted by the Spencer Police Department, Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation, and Clay County Attorney’s Office determined that Bandomo illegally gained entry into an occupied residence at 801 East Twelfth Street in Spencer. They say that on the date of shooting, Bandomo was prohibited from making contact with the residents at the home by multiple protection orders. They tell us that 26-year-old Andres Ramos of Sibley fired a single shot, striking Bandomo while Bandomo was inside the residence. Bandomo fled the residence to 819 East Twelfth Street, where emergency personnel found him.

The investigation concluded that Ramos was justified in using deadly force against Bandomo under Iowa law.
