Man call the cops: ‘can you send an officer to pick me up, I shot my landlord’.
Authorities say a man in South Florida faces murder charges after fatally shooting a realtor he thought was his former landlord. The 51-year-old suspect had just been evicted from his Coral Springs home before the fatal shooting two days before Christmas.
Police say Sara Trost, the victim, was waiting outside the house to speak with a possible buyer when she was shot by Raymond Reese, who mistook her for his former landlord, according to the Coral Spring Police Department.
“It was a mistaken identity,” a rabbi of Chabad of Parkland, where Trost was an active member told the South Florida Sun Sentinel that she never even got out of the car. After the incident, Reese dialed 911 and informed the cops that he had shot his former landlord and believed she was dead.
According to the arrest warrant, Reese informed a dispatcher, “Can you send an officer to pick me up, I shot somebody.”
“He was outraged at his former landlord over an email she sent him the previous day, which he had seen that morning,” according to the arrest warrant, Reese admitted to shooting someone at the residence in Coral Springs where he used to live.
A first-degree murder charge has been filed against Reese following his arrest on Thursday. There was no lawyer named for him in online court records. According to jail records, he was still in custody on Monday at the Broward County Jail.
