Angry Florida Man Shoots AAA Worker Because of Long Response Time

Jesus Esquivel

A man in Miami faces second-degree murder charges after police said he fatally shot a AAA contract worker over the amount of time he waited to get assistance.

Jesus Esquivel, 63, initially threatened a 24-hour roadside AAA technician when he called him to fix a car battery at his home, WPLG reports.

The technician then requested AAA dispatch to remove him from Esquivel’s service call, and an employee of a company contracted by AAA came to assist him instead.

Once the employee arrived, police said Esquivel confronted him and shot him multiple times. Police said the victim died at the scene, according to WPLG.

Police took Esquivel to Miami-Dade County Jail Wednesday after he confessed to fatally shooting the employee.
