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.┬áThe 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.
