Miami gang member sentenced to life after killing 22-year-old man, assaulting a federal agent


Miami, Florida – A Miami man has been sentenced to life in prison for a series of crimes including the murder of a man in aid of racketeering, assaulting a federal law enforcement officer, multiple counts of discharging a firearm in furtherance of violent crime, possessing firearms and ammunition as a convicted felon, access device fraud, and aggravated identity theft. The sentencing includes five years of supervised release.

Details of the Crimes

On April 28, 2020, Geno St. Flerose, a member of the “Everybody Eats” gang, known as “EBE,” pursued a victim for over four blocks before fatally shooting him.

St. Flerose fired 13 rounds into the victim’s car, striking him three times. Although paramedics transported the 22-year-old victim to the hospital, he succumbed to his injuries.

On June 17, 2020, while a federal special agent was conducting surveillance in St. Flerose’s neighborhood, St. Flerose noticed the agent’s car. He ran into the street and fired multiple rounds at the vehicle. Although the shots penetrated the car, the agent was not struck.
