Customer fatally shot by auto shop owner after argument over repairs, deputies say

A dispute between an auto shop owner and a customer turned fatal when the owner shot and killed the man Friday morning, according to Broward Sheriff’s Office detectives.

William Mann, 52, owner of the shop in Pompano Beach, got into an argument with 28-year-old Richard Buchanan over repairs made on Buchanan’s Lexus. Witnesses told BSO detectives that when the argument escalated, Mann shot Buchanan.

Mann remained on the scene, at 2100 N. Powerline Road, but does not appear to have been arrested or charged. Buchanan was taken to Broward Health North, where he died.
