And -- we're told the alleged shooter was angry because the 'Repo' crew had parked in front of his house while taping an episode a few doors down from him.

Cops tell us ... it all went down when the "Repo" team arrived at a home in North Las Vegas to take the vehicle ... when the suspect came outside and got into a physical altercation with several crew members.

We're told the production security team intervened -- and that's when the suspect pulled out a gun and opened fire at the production crew right on the street. The man then retreated back to his home.

Cops responded to the scene and set up a perimeter around the home. During the stand-off, we're told the man threatened to kill himself.

Cops sent a K-9 unit into the home and apprehended the suspect. The man was arrested and booked for attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon and obstructing a police officer.

We're told the entire incident was captured on tape by "Repo Games" -- which premieres tonight at 8:00 PM on Spike TV.

I am still unconvinced we've evolved from the caveman era.

I agree with alot of staements here, though i think people need to pay the pipper when buying things on credit. it is very much in poor taste to put cameras in peoples face when they are losing something important to them whether its because they are irresposible or have fallen on tough time due to the economy. its shameless exploitation and i figured the liberal leftist side of the media would be all over it, but its hipocricy at its best.

TV has become nothing but trash, and this show is a perfect example. Having just gone through a repossession of my personal vehicle; I don't consider it entertaining or a joke. I can't believe that some people are entertained by this crap. It's not funny to the person that it happens to in reality.

How is the show preying on people? It is giving them a chance to pay off a debt. Some of them don't pay their car note because they don't WANT to.
