88-Year-Old Accused Of Opening Fire Over Real Estate Deal

Police say an 88-year-old client who wanted his down payment back on a deal shot a South Carolina real estate broker.

Rock Hill Police Lt. Michael Belk says Richard Blow burst into a Coldwell Banker office in Rock Hill Wednesday and shot 68-year-old Jerry O'Neil in the abdomen and was taken to a hospital.

Belk says Blow had been charged with assault with intent to kill and could face more charges. Belk says he wanted his money back.

Coldwell corporate spokeswoman Kim Cox told several media outlets O'Neil was the broker in charge, which is the equivalent of a manager.

Belk says about 10 other employees were in the office at the time, but only O'Neil was injured.

    Sounds like he was cheated out of a home that HE paid for. Now he will be in a home that WE pay for...
