Repo Man Involved In Deadly Confrontation

MIRAMAR (CBS4) – A South Florida repossession agent, also known as a repo man, shot and killed a man after being shot at while trying to do his job.

According to Miramar police, the repo agent was attempting to recover a 2005 Dodge Magnum located on the 6200 block of SW 27 Street around 12:00 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 15th when he was approached by Jewell Omar Williams. The agent told police Williams was cursing and yelling at him and obstructed him from removing the vehicle. Then, police said, Williams pulled out a gun and started firing.

The repo agent, who was not hit, grabbed his own gun and shot back.

Police said Williams was not the owner of the vehicle, nor did he live at the address where the car was parked.

Williams was transported to Memorial Regional with gunshot wounds. He later died at the hospital.
