Man Tries to Sell Truck on Craigslist, is Shot, Carjacked by Buyer

A Houston man who tried to sell his Ford F-150 truck on Craigslist was shot and carjacked on Thursday night when he met the buyer.

The owner of the pickup truck and a friend met the interested buyer at a restaurant at 9:30 p.m. The man who responded to the Craigslist ad was waiting with another suspect in the parking lot. When the men met, one of the alleged suspects shot the seller and fled the scene of the crime in the F-150. The man’s accomplice got away in his own vehicle.

The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he is in critical condition. Police have not apprehended either suspect.
