Isaiah Ramos, 14, is charged with allegedly shooting at police officers

The 14-year-old boy, who was accused of shooting two Staten Island police officers over the weekend, was charged with attempted murder and was being held on $300,000 bail on Sunday — as his aunt called him “a good kid.”

Isaiah Ramos wore black Nike slides, black shorts and a white T-shirt during his arraignment in Staten Island Criminal Court for allegedly shooting at two police officers in an unmarked police cruiser just after 10 p.m. Saturday.

Neither officer was hit and officers arrested Ramos – who has no criminal record – after a brief chase.

“He’s a good boy,” the teen’s aunt told the court. “But sometimes things happen.”

Defense attorney Michael Harding pleaded for leniency in court, citing his young client’s previously clean record and the fact that he is a student at Eagle Academy.

Prosecutors asked to keep the boy behind bars on $500,000 bail, but the judge ordered he be held on $300,000 bail or $900,000 bail.

The officers who were attacked were in their squad car near Prince Street and Vanderbilt Avenue around 10:10 p.m. when the young teenage gunman approached them and opened fire – missing both the police and the car.

Police said he was carrying a pistol when he was arrested.

“He was sparkling clean until last night,” a source had told the Post. “He debuted this one.”

According to a police source, Ramos has no criminal record.  His aunt described him as one "good kid."
