Eviction Gone Bad In Miami Beach

Posted: 23 Nov 2010 05:47 AM PST

Royal-atlanticEvictions are never easy. Add in the tension of a father evicting a son and in this case a blood bath happened on Miami Beach. Joseph Richer was told by his father that he was going to be evicted from his Ocean Drive condo after not paying rent since 2003.

When the police and property management company came to evict him, Richer fired with his .357 handgun killing one  and wounding two others. Richer was injured by return fire.

The tensions in these situations can be amazingly intense for all parties. Typically there is some understanding reached by the parties before the situation becomes violent, but if you are involved in an eviction, be prepared for violence.

On Monday morning, an eviction team — Gomez, a potential buyer, a Miami-Dade officer and a sergeant and two movers — arrived sometime after 10 a.m.

Police knocked and announced their intention, said Miami-Dade police spokeswoman Lt. Rosanna Cordero-Stutz.

There was no reply. Gomez took out tools and began working on the lock.

The door burst open and the man inside started firing. The shooter emptied his .357 revolver, said John Rivera, president of the Police Benevolent Association, who had been briefed on the shooting.

The bullets killed Gomez. An officer returned fire, striking the shooter. The officer had minor eye injuries and was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

One of the movers scrambled from the scene, jumping down the front of the building to get away. Via The Miami Herald
