Two Shot After Responding to Craigslist Ad

(LITTLE ROCK, Ark.) -- Two men were shot Tuesday evening after responding to an advertisement about a car for sale on Craigslist.

Police said in published reports that two men went to the 5200 block of Halifax Drive around 6:30 p.m. and met the purported car seller, who told them that the vehicle wasn't there because another prospective buyer was out test driving it.

Police said after a wait, the seller pulled out a handgun and demanded money from the two buyers.

One victim was reportedly shot in the leg after failing to hand over any money, and the other was shot during a struggle with the gunman.

The suspect then fled the scene, and the two victims drove to a local hospital for treatment to non-life-threatening injuries, according to reports.
