Family and Friends Protest Shooting

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Family and friends of Richard Ramirez gathered late Wednesday afternoon in Billings to protest the shooting.

More than a dozen people held up signs and chanted. The protest was held on the Yellowstone County Courthouse lawn. Ramirez's younger brother says Richard took care of him with his struggles and the sadness of his death will never go away.

"He was nothing but a good man, a hard working man," said Julio Ramirez, Jr. "They have the wrong suspect and that's all I'd really like to say."

But according to MetraPark's sales and marketing director, the concert might not have been possible without another big event in Metra history - the Father's Day Tornado. Some shows like this would have had too much gear, such as heavy stacks of speakers, for the arena a few years ago."The Father's Day Tornado tore the roof off the place, but it gave us an opportunity ...
