I will include a clickable link below, but here's the story so far:
EDGEWOOD, Wash. -- A man has died after being shot during what appeared to be a home invasion robbery on Wednesday night.
Sheriff's spokesman Ed Troyer said the incident took place at a home in the 3600 block of 106th Ave. Ct. E. The man, his wife and their two sons were home at the time.
Troyer said homeowner had listed an expensive ring for sale on Craigslist, and was expecting a potential buyer to stop by the home to take a look at around 9:30 p.m.
At least three men arrived, "flashed cash" at the door, and "homeowners let'em in to buy a ring," Troyer said.
But once inside the home, the men pulled out a gun, according to Troyer.
It is unclear what transpired next, but one man opened fire and shot the father multiple times, investigators said. The shot man's 14-year-old son lunged at the gunman, and was pistol-whipped on the head.

The gunmen fled before deputies arrived. The 43-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. His son was taken to an area hospital to be checked out. Detectives are looking for at least three suspects. A description was not available. "All we do know at this point is that they had phone contact with the family earlier, because the family was trying to sell an expensive ring," Troyer said

This is so sad! I feel for the family and I am thinking that I wont be listing anything else on CL. I sold a ring this last Christmas to raise money for a friend. We did the exchange at my home and to be honest with you all I never thought of robbery. I did have the neighbors over to watch the exchange, but I worried more about rape than robbery or murder. It is sad as well because I think in this desperate time people are sinking to new lows!
