ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A Fort Pierce man will serve three life prison terms after a jury convicted him of multiple felonies related to a 2018 shootout involving St. Lucie County sheriff’s deputies, according to a state prosecutor.
The pursuit: On Nov. 16, 2018, Eduardo Ramirez, 25, was driving a Honda Civic as his passenger Jose Nspanvspan, 24, used an automatic rifle to fire a barrage of bullets at four sheriff’s vehicles as the pair fled a traffic stop in the Orange Blossom Estates community. Nava damaged patrol cruisers but did not strike any deputies, who returned gunfire.
Deputies rammed the Honda and stopped it at Edwards Road and Sunrise Boulevard, less than 2 miles from where the chase began.
