Once again, even criminals aren’t safe when using craigslist. In Austin, Texas, 26-year-old Cutberto Moran-Ayala was killed in a shootout with three men from Chicago. Moran-Ayala advertised weed for sale on craigslist and when he arrived for the sale he was greeted by 22-year-old Savon Galloway who allegedly stuck a gun in the dealer’s face. The two exchanged fire along with 22-year-old Akeem Bradford who was with Galloway. Also arrested was 19-year-old Christopher Hamilton. All three have been charged with capital murder. Considering this is Texas we’re talking about, capital murder charges often lead to capital punishment.
No honor among thieves and dealers, I guess.
Maybe if craigslist actually moderated their ads, maybe Moran-Ayala would still be alive. While illegal activity may attract other illegal activity, very few people deserve to be gunned down like that.
