ATLANTA -- A man was shot and killed while participating in a Craigslist transaction overnight.
The victim was shot just after midnight Tuesday at a house on Shadowridge Drive in southeast Atlanta.
A DeKalb County Police spokesperson said the victim was one of four men who met at the house to discuss the sale of a cell phone after an advertisement for the phone was posted on Craigslist.
At one point, one of the men pulled out a gun and shot another man. Investigators did not immediately know if the victim was a buyer, seller or bystander.
The victim, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Police are investigating the possibility that the shooting was part of a robbery or attempted robbery.
