Homeowner Charged with Attempted Murder after Attempting to Shoot Property Manager

In an upscale neighborhood in Northern California, a property owner was sued by a landlord for failing to pay his rent. The court issued an order requiring him to vacate the premises. When the property manager served the order, the homeowner shot him through the front door and narrowly missed a deputy from the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department. That homeowner was arrested and was recently charged with attempted murder. An arraignment hearing has been scheduled for January 31, 2014.

Given volatilities with evictions and foreclosures, real estate agents and property managers are advised to be cautious in dealing with homeowners under these circumstances.
