The U.S. Marshal's Montana Violent Offender Task Force arrested Daniel Ramirez in Billings on Tuesday afternoon.

Montana's Chief Deputy Marshal Rod Ostermiller said that the task force developed information that Ramirez might be at Prairie Tower Apartments, 725 N. 25th St., and arrested him there without incident at about 1 p.m.

Ramirez was wanted on felony arrest warrants for possession of dangerous drugs and burglary.

In April, Billings Police Officer Grant Morrison shot and killed Ramirez's brother, Richard Ramirez, during a traffic stop. Richard Ramirez was a suspect in an earlier robbery.

A third Ramirez brother, Jason, has twice been arrested by the task force since his brother's death on warrants out of Yellowstone and Gallatin counties. He remains in custody at the county jail on a $500,000 bond.
