Southfield — A 69-year-old Southfield man who allegedly wounded a repo man who was trying to drive off with his vehicle this week was formally charged Friday with four counts in the incident.

Henry Anderson was ordered by Southfield 46th District Judge Cynthia Arvant to be held in the Oakland County Jail in lieu of $100,000 cash or surety bond on two counts of assault with intent to murder and two firearms offenses. Arvant ordered a Sept. 14 pre-exam conference.

The shooting occurred about 5:30 a.m. Thursday in the 22000 block of Chatsford Circuit in a confrontation over Anderson’s Chrysler 300.

The victim, a 44-year-old Southgate man reportedly hired to repossess the vehicle because its owner was behind in payments, was described in stable condition in an area hospital with a gunshot wound to the leg.

Police also recovered a handgun believed to have been used in the shooting, Southfield Deputy Chief Nick Loussia said.
