Deputies: Woman shoots and kills would-be Craigslist robber

AIKEN, S.C. -- Authorities say a man trying to rob a couple who thought they were going to buy a car off Craigslist has been shot and killed.

Aiken County deputies said in a news release that officers are looking for the second robber after he ran away following the shooting Wednesday afternoon.

Investigators say the would-be robbers pulled out a gun and demanded money when they met the couple at an Aiken gas station where they planned to buy a car listed on the Internet site.
Deputies say while the gun was pointed at the man, his girlfriend pulled her own weapon and shot at the robbers.

Coroner Tim Carlton says 23-year-old Frank Frazier Jr. died at the scene of the shooting.

The couple was not hurt. Deputies continue to investigate.


Personal note: I know someone who lives in Aiken, SC.
Also, I've Googled this incident and have yet to see a report that states that the woman was legally carrying concealed.

Nice to see a robbery foiled. Glad the good folks didn't get injured. It also reminds me that any in-person sales should be conducted at a police station. Isn't there a designated parking area up in Layton for such purposes that was discussed recently? I guess you could pick any police station parking lot though.
