SMYRNA, Ga. (AP) – Police are searching for a suspect after one man was shot near Cumberland Mall when a Craigslist transaction went wrong.

News outlets report that a man was shot in the Carrabba’s restaurant parking lot Monday afternoon. Smyrna Police Department spokesman Louis Defense says preliminary information says the victim and suspect met for a sale arranged on Craigslist.
