A 25-year-old Niagara Falls man charged in the 2016 fatal shooting at the Anchor Bar will spend four years in prison in connection with a separate domestic violence case.

In March, Gregory Ramos pleaded guilty to strangling the 25-year-old mother of his two young children into the middle of Fargo Avenue in Buffalo until she turned purple and lost consciousness.

Two days later, Niagara Falls police arrested Ramos following a high-speed chase through Niagara Falls to Grand Island.

Ramos was also convicted on federal drug and gun charges in March, for which he faces up to life in prison when sentenced in July.

Ramos additionally faces a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison if convicted of state charges of second-degree murder and criminally possessing a firearm in connection with the Anchor Bar shooting. He is currently being held in jail without bail on those charges.
