JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) -- Police south of Atlanta are investigating a shootout that began after a family set up a meeting to sell an iPhone 5 with someone they met through Facebook.
WSB-TV reports that a mother, her son and his girlfriend arranged to meet a prospective buyer at a QuikTrip in Jonesboro.
Police said that while the son and his girlfriend were in the store early Monday morning, three men got into the mother's car and demanded the phone, money and her car keys at gunpoint.
When the woman's son approached, one of the suspects flashed a gun and tried to drive off. Police said the son fired 15 rounds at the men's black Dodge Charger. No one was injured.
Officers apprehended three suspects. Few details about them were immediately available.
