WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- Wichita police say an attempted weekend robbery involving a video game system advertised on Craigslist shows why people need to be careful when buying or selling items on the website.

The Wichita Eagle (http://bit.ly/YnVacP) reports two men in their early 20s went to a meeting place at 2:30 p.m. Saturday to buy a Sony PlayStation. Police say the men were in their vehicle negotiating a purchase price when the male seller tried to climb into the vehicle and rob them.

The assailant pulled a handgun from his backpack and fired at the would-be buyers as they tried to drive away. A police spokesman says five to six shots were fired at the vehicle, but missed.

Police say the man who fired the shots fled with a second man on foot.
