SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. - Investigators said a Craigslist ad for a four-wheeler led to an attempted robbery and deadly shooting in Seminole County over the weekend.
The incident happened about 3:30 p.m. Saturday in the parking lot of an apartment complex off Canterbury Drive in Lake Mary.
Investigators said two suspects tried to rob two men who were selling a four-wheeler on Craigslist.
The men agreed to meet near the leasing office of the apartment complex to do the sale, deputies said, but when they both got there, the deal didn’t go as planned.
"Those two men jumped into the back of the lighter car, put guns to the back of their head and proceeded to rob them," said Heather Smith of the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.
But deputies said the victims had a gun of their own and opened fire on the suspects, killing one of them and injuring the other.
According to officials, both suspects tried to leave the scene in their car, but the fatally wounded suspect lost control of the vehicle not far away. The injured suspect, who had been shot multiple times, fled the scene on foot and was found hiding under a duplex nearby.
The two victims were not injured and they are not facing any charges at this point, deputies said.
Officials have not released the identities of either suspect.
