Authorities have arrested two men suspected of shooting a St. Louis man after he answered a Craigslist ad about a car.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that officers arrested the men Thursday, one day after the shooting happened.
The victim saw an ad for a used car on Craigslist and went to the city's north side to look at it. Police say two men approached his car as he pulled up to the home. One of the men began firing shots into the victim's vehicle.
The victim was able to drive to an auto parts store to get help. He was shot several times. Two people who were in the car with him weren't injured.
Police Chief Sam Dotson urged people "to always use caution when conducting business online."
