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.
