FL: Stray bullet kills Plantation man fishing in wildlife area, deputies believe

July 6, 2017

Bullets from out of nowhere killed Lawrence Ramdass, 46, as he fished in a wildlife area Wednesday afternoon — and the source of the gunfire remains a mystery. While some areas in the Holey Land Wildlife Management area allow shooting during hunting season, none was allowed the day he was shot.

Ramdass was on a boat with his uncle and a family friend in the Holey Land Wildlife Management Area near the Palm Beach Broward County Line. Ramdass’ uncle and the family friend dove out of the boat when the shooting began. Shortly after, they found Ramdass shot in the boat, his cousin said.

Wildlife officers regularly catch people shooting illegally and that signs placed by the agency are shot down.
