EVERETT, WASHINGTON — During what authorities believe to be a meetup organized online to sell an iPhone, things went south for both parties involved when one of them pulled out a gun to try and rob the other.
The gun displayed was fake, and that suspect didn’t know that his intended victim was carrying a real gun.
“Initial reports indicate that the two men had arranged to meet so that one could sell the other an iPhone,” according to a news release. “During the interaction, the intended buyer allegedly pulled a fake gun and attempted to rob the seller. The seller responded by pulling a real gun and shooting the other man several times.”
The suspect was taken to the hospital, and is likely still there, in critical condition.
