A man was shot and killed overnight in Atlanta, Ga., during a Craigslist transaction, WXIA reports. The victim, whose name was not released, was shot Tuesday at a house on Atlanta's southeast side, according to police.

Police did not know if the victim was the seller or buyer in the transaction over a cell phone listed for sale on Craigslist.

The victim was one of four men who met at the house to discuss the sale just after midnight Tuesday.

One of the men pulled out a gun and shot the victim in what police believe was a robbery or attempted robbery, according to a DeKalb County Police spokesperson.

The victim was described as a 60-year-old man who had been shot several times, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

He was pronounced dead at a local hospital.

Police are still searching for the suspect.
