KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A couple looking at a car they'd seen on Craigslist was shot Thursday night at the meeting place in the 5500 block of 84th Terrace, just south of Swope Park.

The couple and their 16-year-old son arrived to see the car and spoke to the seller about it. They say the seller then went inside to make a phone call, and that's when two men came out and shot the victims, then fled with the woman's purse.

According to police, the seller and the suspects left in the car. It was later found abandoned near the Kansas City Police Department's East Patrol Division.

The man and woman were both taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
