MICHIGAN - A Detroit woman has been arrested after she recorded of a video about a home she purchased through the Detroit Land Bank. Police say Andrea Sheppard was arrested Friday and the two children seen in the video are now safe. The upset woman fires a gun at the house after claiming she purchased it during a blind auction without knowing it was on a list to be demolished.
The Detroit Land Bank issued the following statement to Fox 2 Detroit:
"The DLBA sells homes that are in need of significant rehabilitation. All properties sold include photographs showing the condition of the home and potential buyers have the opportunity to view the homes before purchasing them. Ms. Sheppard has had difficulty with the renovation project she began. Since she purchased the property in March, 2016 for $1000, the DLBA has attempted to connect her with multiple organizations and resources that could have helped her with her project. The Detroit Land Bank will refund her $1000 purchase."
The angry mom also created a GoFundMe page where she originally was asking for $10 million dollars. The amount has now been lowered to $100,000.
