A deal to sell a handgun to a stranger went bad last night.
Police say a man had legal possession of a handgun and had it advertised for sale.
Someone showed up at his door on a small street off Parkland Drive and said he was interested in buying the piece.
Instead of fronting the cash, he pepper-sprayed the seller, grabed the gun and ran away.
Police describe the suspect as “black male, 20s, 5’10”, 170lbs, wearing a red sweatshirt, and sweat pants.”
