A trade meeting with an ATV quad bike seller claimed the life of a Mississippi man last week.

26-year-old Kyle Craig, of Ocean Springs, had purchased the bike on Facebook Marketplace. He met with its seller on June 2 in Holmes County where he was shot to death, police said.

His relatives reported him missing after they failed to contact him, Holmes County Sheriff Willie March said in a statement.

According to sources, the suspect is a teenage boy who shot Craig several times and stole his money with the help of Montavious Landfair who is still on the run.
