A 19-year-old man was fatally shot Thursday night after pulling a gun on another man who was selling medical marijuana in a south Phoenix park, according to police.
The deceased man had responded to an ad on Craigslist from a medical-marijuana seller, said Sgt. Trent Crump, a Phoenix police spokesman.
He met the seller, a 54-year-old man, at about 9:45 p.m. Thursday at El Reposo Park, near the 500 block of East Alta Vista Road.
The seller told police that the would-be buyer pulled a gun after being asked to show his medical-marijuana card, Crump said. The seller said he retrieved his own weapon and fired.
