A repossession worker shot last month on the job is speaking out after discovering the shooter is not being charged.
"It really struck me as something that wasn't fair due to the fact that when you don't pay a note on a vehicle, you know someone's coming after that vehicle," says Kevin Sisco, 28, with Frankie's Towing and Recovery/Recovery Solutions.
Sisco was repossessing a car in the Raleigh Village Apartments. Sisco says the car was running so he got in to drive it back to the lot. He says a woman from the home it was in front of jumped on the hood of the car; that's when a man came out with a gun.
"She immediately got off the hood of the car, went to who was holding the firearm and told him ‘Please do not shoot.' Then all I heard was ‘I'm going to kill this white boy. He's not taking our car,'" says Sisco.
FOX 13 contacted the Shelby County District Attorney's Office about why the shooter was not charged; they say they ruled that the shooting was justified.
Sisco says he still feels that some sort of justice needs to be paid.
"I feel it's right if my medical bills are paid and maybe some kind of compensation for me being off work over a month," says Sisco.
His shooting in November came one month after tow truck driver Scotty Arnold was shot while repossessing a vehicle. Sisco says the violence needs to stop, adding that they're only doing their job.
