A 23-year-old Philadelphia man has now been convicted of a violent 2010 crime wave that will keep him in prison for the rest of his life.
Nasuil Martinez has been ordered to stand trial, charged with shooting a police officer, committing a murder, shooting and wounding two more officers before he was arrested, and then plotting to escape from custody with a homemade shiv.
Authorities say potential tragedy was prevented by an alert Philadelphia deputy sheriff.
Officer Kevin Gorman testified that defendant Nasuil Martinez shot him at point-blank range during a foot pursuit in December.
A three-hour standoff between police and a man who allegedly shot two SWAT team members early Wednesday morning ended with the suspect shooting himself, apparently accidentally.
