Two thieves who tried to rob a Littleton, Colo., man that they targeted through a Craigslist advertisement came out on the short end of the situation.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, the men went to the home feigning interest in the item advertised, overpowered the homeowner and tied him up. One of the suspects then stole the man’s car.
But the homeowner managed to escape his bounds, grabbed a gun and shot the other suspect, who died at the scene. According to authorities, deputies are searching for the second man, who fled in another vehicle.
