Craigslist sale in central Toledo ends in shooting

TOLEDO, OH That's the message from local investigators and a lesson one man learned the hard way.

That man tells police he drove to Toledo from Sandusky to buy a Playstation. The man says he found the gaming console for sale on Craigslist.

When Robert Graves III showed up, he says the alleged seller pulled a gun, demanded money, then shot him in the leg.

Police found Graves, 25, on the ground last night around 9 o'clock. He was in front of a home on the 300 block of South Detroit.

Officers say Graves drove there with his two friends and eventually got out, laid down and called police.

Detectives in Oregon will tell you: use common sense when you're making a deal over the internet.

After Graves was released from the hospital, police arrested him on an outstanding felonious assault warrant from 2008.

They are still looking for the man who shot him.
