San Diego, CA – A teenager was shot to death after responding to a fake ad posted on Craigslist.
When 18-year-old Garrett Berki and his girlfriend arrived at a location to purchase an item they saw for sale on Craigslist, they found out that the three 17-year-old black males they met weren’t selling anything at all. They had lured Berki to the location to rob him and his girlfriend of their cash and cell phones before jumping in a car and taking off.
Maybe he was just too pissed to think clearly, or maybe his ego clouded his judgement, but for whatever reason Berki made a fatal mistake when he began following the robbers in order to get their license plate number. When Berki followed the teens into a cul-de-sac, he was fired upon after the their car passed each other. Berki was struck and would later die at the hospital.
After shooting Berki, the three teens fled on foot after they crashed their car, but were apprehended shortly after with the help of air and canine units. They have been placed in a juvenile facility on suspicion of robbery and murder charges. Officers said they will not divulge the item Berki and his girlfriend were trying to purchase.
I occasionally buy things off of Craigslist and people always tell me I should meet the seller in a police station parking lot or somewhere public, but that makes it really tough for me to get the blowjob I paid for without getting arrested.Tags: California, Craigslist, Crime, Garrett Berki, Juvenile, Murder, Robbery, Shooting
