    'A Missouri couple trying to buy their son's first car was shot Wednesday in a nightmare Craigslist deal.

    Police in Kansas City said the father, his wife and their 16-year-old son were robbed while they checked out a 2007 four-door Hyundai at an apartment complex, KCTV reported.'

    In KS City, MO, Dad and teen son took the vehicle for a test drive, but when they began talking about the price, the seller (known only as AJ) walked away to take a call and two robbers suddenly appeared and demanded the money. When it wasn't immediately forthcoming, Dad was shot several times and mom was shot once.

    No identities or condition of the couple have been released.

    The robbers got the money and in very early reports I saw of this they got the couple's car as well, but this article isn't making that clear. Weirdly, the 'seller' of the vehicle and gunmen escaped, but police are questioning four others.

    Scary! I hope the mom and dad survived.

    I would never advertise anything on CL nor respond to any of their ads because I read of things like this happening all too often.

    Here is an update on the case:

    A few heros in this case (snipped):

    The mom and son survived because the dad shielded them. If they dad pulls through, it will be because of the actions of this caring couple from the neighborhood.

    There have been so many murders associated to Craigslist. In so many different categories. It seems so dangerous to meet up with people you don't know and where money is concerned. jMO

    I met my boyfriend on Craigslist and I thank my stars daily he was and is relatively normal. Athough I did take many safety precautions.
