Man gets life sentence for shooting East Texas trooper
TYLER, Texas — A Mexican national was sentenced to 14 life terms in prison after pleading guilty to shooting a state trooper and firing on other officers during a car chase.
Ramon Armando Ramos, 38, pleaded guilty Tuesday to 14 counts of aggravated assault on a public servant with a deadly weapon for the March 22 gunfight.
District Court Judge Cynthia Stevens Kent ruled that Ramos would serve two of the sentences consecutively, with the remainder served concurrently. He would be eligible for parole in 60 years.
Ramos and suspect Francisco Saucedo are accused of shooting Department of Public Safety Trooper Steven Stone after he pulled the suspects over for speeding and began handcuffing Ramos for marijuana possession.
The altercation was captured on a video camera in Stone's patrol car. Stone was shot at least three times, including in his chest and shoulder, and is still recovering.
Ramos and Saucedo fled the scene and exchanged gunfire with Tyler police officers during a car chase before police were able to stop Ramos' truck.
Smith County sheriff's Detective Noel Martin said three handguns and an assault rifle were confiscated from the truck. Both suspects were wearing body armor.
Ramos has pleaded guilty in federal court to an immigration violation.
Saucedo also faces 14 charges of aggravated assault on a public service with a deadly weapon. He is set to go on trial next month.

"A Mexican national...pleaded guilty in federal court to an immigration violation"
And here, I thought "illegal" didn't mean "criminal" Go figure.I may have many faults, but being wrong ain't one of them.
