DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -- Two men attempting to sell a dog over the internet were involved in a fatal shooting in DeKalb County overnight.
The shooting happened early Friday, when a breeder from Winder and his friend drove to 5044 Fairforest Drive with an English bulldog to sell to the man who answered their online ad.
Originally, police reported the ad was a Craigslist deal, then later said the sellers actually used the website Hoobly.com, another classifieds service.
According to DeKalb County Police Capt. Steve Fore, the 40-year-old buyer produced a gun, intending to rob the sellers. The breeder's friend pulled out a gun of his own and shot the buyer, killing him. The sellers called 911 after the shooting.
