Shots fired during botched Craigslist robbery at Florida Walmart

Occurred February 4, 2014.

(UPDATED -- See below)

A man met with two other men to sell a $4500 ring, as arranged on Craigslist, in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Pensacola, Florida.

After the transaction, the two men who bought the ring then attempted to bind and rob the victim.  After the victim escaped, he then chased the two men, who then opened fire on him.  Police captured the two men.

Luckily, no one was injured.

From an article with pics of the suspects:
Darius Beasley, 21, and Jamichael Tucker, 19, were arrested Tuesday afternoon after deputies responded to reports of shots fired near the intersection of Pensacola Boulevard and Hood Drive, according to the report. 
A victim at the scene said he met Beasley in the parking lot after arranging to sell him a $4,500 wedding ring on Craigslist, the report said. The victim allowed Beasley into his vehicle, where they exchanged the ring and an envelope containing cash. 
The victim said that immediately afterward, Tucker approached the driver’s side of the vehicle and pointed a gun inside. Tucker then allegedly opened the door of the vehicle and attempted to put duct tape around the victim’s wrists. 
The victim was able to get out of the vehicle and run away, and the two suspects returned to their car and drove off, the report said. The victim began to chase the pair in his truck, and Tucker reportedly leaned out of his car window and began shooting at the victim. 
The chase ended when a deputy arrived on the scene and advised the suspects to pull over. 
Tucker and Beasley were taken into custody without incident, and no one was injured in the event.
