North Fort Myers teen receives life sentence in Suncoast shooting
A North Fort Myers teen has been sentenced to life in prison for the 2015 shooting death of a man in Suncoast Estates.
Manley Shane Sigman, 19, received the sentence on charges of second degree murder with a firearm and shooting at, within, or into a dwelling or building, according to a statement released by the State Attorney’s Office Tuesday.
Sigman was convicted by a jury on the charges last year.
In October 2015, Sigman approached the victim, who was on a screened-in lanai, and shot him multiple times. Sigman then fled in a vehicle and was later captured. The victim was transported to the hospital with gunshot wounds to the hip, abdomen, chest, hand and shoulder. He subsequently died.
The defendant’s sentence will be reviewed in 25 years because he is a juvenile.
Assistant State Attorney Andreas Gardiner of our Homicide Unit and Assistant State Attorney Jennifer Justham handled the case.
