Craigslist scammer shoots two men interested in car

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) – Police said two men have been shot while responding to a Craigslist ad for a car.

According to LRPD, the two men met up with the 'seller' on Halifax Road on Tuesday around 11 a.m. in response to a car ad. They told officers that when they arrived, the seller said another person was test driving the car, so they would have to wait until that person returned. After waiting a while, the seller apparently handed them papers on the car and brandished a gun, demanding money.

The police report indicates that the first victim told the seller to 'shoot him because he wasn't going to give him the money,' so the seller shot him. The second victim involved apparently tried to grab the shooter to pin him down but was also shot in the process.



The year 2014 is almost over and we have had a busy year.  Just a reminder about #GivingTuesday.  This year it falls on Tuesday, December 2, 2014.  Lupus patients, please help and support the cause of lupus.  We have worked since October 1993 so very hard as volunteers and I am happy to say that we have made many accomplishments.  People are finally taking this cruel complex disease of lupus serious.  Research in Little Rock was a big milestone.  Although the research did not work, we are praying that will not be the end of lupus research in Arkansas.  The first medication in over 50 years for lupus was approved  by FDA March 2009 and lupus has been around for many years.  It is difficult for me to believe that lupus patients only had aspirin for the excruiating pain they had to endure, but that is true.
