Craigslist Deal Goes Bad … For Criminals

posted on October 8, 2015

They simply wanted to buy a car. After combing Craigslist, a father and son found the vehicle they wanted and made arrangements to pick it up in Battle Creek, Mich. After driving down from Grand Rapids, they were expecting to be met by a car seller. Instead, they were directed to an address that didn’t exist and were met with three men who jumped them. 

Fortunately, the son had a concealed-carry license and his firearm with him. He drew it and fired twice, hitting two of the attackers in the chest. All three fled—the two who had been shot were captured and the third man remains at large. The injured men were taken to Bronson Methodist Hospital in Kalamazoo, where their conditions were not immediately known. Thanks to the son’s quick actions, neither father nor son were seriously hurt.
