As I mentioned in yesterday’s listings, a man on “Repo Games” — the game show where indebted contestants try to prevent their cars from being repossessed — grew angry at the trucks blocking his driveway and pulled a gun. What I didn’t realize is that he actually fired shots at the crew, and the incident was subsequently aired.
The Repo Games host remembered the moment the suspect [Carlos Barron] came out. He said: “All of a sudden this dude stepped back like 5 or 6 feet, (and) pulls out a gun!”
The cast, crew and contestants were seen running for their lives when they realized the suspect was armed, and firing several shots.
North Las Vegas Police said when they tried to contact Barron, he barricaded himself inside a home. Officers said after a two hour standoff Barron left a rear window, and tried to run. He was taken into custody with the help of a K-9 dog. [Fox 5 Vegas]
There’s a newscast video below that has a clip of the incident, and there are some excellent details to be savored, such as a neighbor named Sleep Kennard and the name of the street where the shooting occurred: Vigilante Court. “You know, when I moved to Vigilante Court, I never thought that a gun owner would take matters into his own hands like that. That’s the whole reason I moved away from Violent Lunatic Avenue.”
