A dispute over a car repossession turned deadly overnight in south Fulton County when two "repo men" were shot.
The incident began shortly after 1 a.m. Thursday at a home on Milam Loop, in the southern end of the county near the Fayette County line.

Fulton police spokesman Scott McBride said two men went to the home to repossess a 2004 Mustang, and the homeowner fired a shotgun at them.
The repo men got the car onto a tow truck and left, but the homeowner caught up with them a short distance away, got the Mustang off the truck and left in it, McBride said.

Responding officers found the tow truck driver wounded, and his passenger dead of a gunshot wound. The wounded man was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital, and was in critical condition, a hospital spokeswoman said.

Police spotted the Mustang, and chased the car into Clayton County, but called off the pursuit after speeds reached 150 mph, McBride said.

He said police are looking for 29-year-old Justin Moore, who was last seen driving the gray Mustang, which has Georgia tag AZZ9191.
