In Memory – Todd Showell – Recovery Agent – 2012

The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office says a man working to repossess a car was shot and killed Tuesday afternoon by an 81-year-old man.

The shooting happened Tuesday afternoon in front of a home on Fletcher Drive.

Chief Deputy Hampton Gardner identified the worker shot and killed as 45-year-old Todd Showell of Lee County.

Gardner says Showell and 68-year-old Gerald Lee of Camden arrived at the house shortly before 2 p.m.

Investigators say Showell and Lee were looking for a burgundy GMC pickup, which they did not realize was parked behind the house. But in front they found a similar red truck with a tag number nearly identical to the one on the truck behind the home.

The sheriff’s department says Alton Shelley appeared on or near the front porch with a handgun.

Showell, driving the wrecker, was hit at least once and was dead by the time deputies arrived.
