CLEVELAND – A man and a woman are in stable condition Saturday after being shot as they tried to sell a hoverboard late Friday evening.

Derek Garvin, 25 and Sheena Smith, 21 told police that they had arranged to sell a hoverboard over the OfferUp app. They agreed to meet the buyer in the parking lot of a restaurant near East 79th and Carnegie. But when the “buyers” arrived, they robbed the couple of the board and fired shots at the couple as they left the parking lot. The hoverboard was valued at around $700.

The suspects were driving a silver vehicle, possibly a Jeep Cherokee.

Both victims were taken to University Hospitals for treatment.

Cleveland detectives are continuing their investigation into this shooting.
