The me­chanic set­tled the dis­pute with a bul­let, deputies say.

The 28-year-old owner of a Lexus ar­gued Fri­day with the owner of a Pom­pano Beach au­tore­pair shop, ac­cord­ing to the Broward Sher­iff’s Of­fice.

Wit­nesses told deputies that while ar­gu­ing about re­pairs to the 2004 Lexus IS 300, Wil­liam Mann pulled a gun and shot the ve­hi­cle’s owner once, said Joy Oglesby, a BSO spokes­woman.

Richard Buchanan, of North Laud­erdale, died at Broward Health North, Oglesby said.

Mann, 52, of Coral Springs, re­mained at the scene, 2100 N. Pow­er­line Road, she said.

The de­tails of the dis­putewere not dis­closed. .
