GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – A Craigslist deal went wrong, causing two men to get shot at Monday evening.

Two men from Okemos traveled to Grand Rapids to purchase an Apple iPhone around 7 p.m.

The pair waited outside an All Star Wireless at 2023 Eastern Avenue SE to pick up the phone. That’s when the guy they were meeting allegedly fired two shots into their Toyota Tundra pickup.

Fortunately no one was injured, the suspect took off with their cash on foot.

The suspect was described to police as a black man in his 30s, about 6-feet-2-inches, buzz cut, a lazy right eye, wearing a black coat and a blue and white winter hat with fold down flaps.

Grand Rapids Police report this is the third robbery following ads for an iPhone on Craigslist recently. The first two incidents were reported back in November.
