Woman shot responding to Craigslist ad in East Cleveland

Posted: Updated:
EAST CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

We've learned of more violence that appears tied to someone trying to make a deal with a meeting after an ad on the popular website Craigslist.

The latest trouble happened in East Cleveland with shots fired and a woman even struck in the leg.

Police say Thursday afternoon a woman, her daughter, and her daughter's boyfriend went to East Cleveland to see a used car they'd seen advertised on Craigslist.

Investigators say just before they got to the address on Luxor Road, a man stopped them and confronted them with a gun.

When they sped off, shots were fired at the car. The woman was hit in the leg, but not hurt seriously.

The driver then sped to a nearby auto dealer and called for help.

No arrests have been made. East Cleveland Detectives are following up on the case.

Craigslist has repeatedly made local and national headlines after innocent people were robbed or killed by strangers when they met to make deals.
