GOOD: Would be robber shot dead, another flees
This happened near where I live. A man went to meet another man to purchase two MacBook Pros and instead wound up getting robbed. The robber was distracted and the victim pulled his own gun and terminated the threat. It should be noted that the WSB is one of those news outlets that sees the criminal(s) killed in any given self defense situation as the victim.

The victim (Mr. Williams) got into the passenger's side of Mr. Powell's car. He then pulled a gun, demanded the money, took the money from Mr. Powell and dropped some. As the victim was picking up money, he still had the gun pointed at him. The shooter (Mr. Powell) then pulled his own weapon and says he fired in self-defense. The driver of the Eclipse and essentially left his robbery partner to die in the parking lot," said Johnson.

That first article is terribly written, how did that make it past the editors desk.
The latter two far better detail what happened.

Too bad but that is what happens when you think you are buying hot/stolden computers and things go bad. Why put yourself in that position go to the store or get one on line.

The writing skills and editing work ethic nowadays in the journalism profession are absolutely pathetic.

Looks like "an acute failure of the victim selection process".

When I sell stuff on craigslist, I always demand to meet at a public place inside a mall or at a gun range etc.

Meeting in a public place is not always possible. I went with a friend who was looking for an older classic type pickup. The one he wanted to look at was on Craig's list, out in the country. I went along with him and we were both strapped. There were several males at the location, but everything went well and he bought the truck. Sometimes you have to be flexible on certain items, just be prepared.

If what you say is true the person was not defending himself when he shot. He was using a gun during the commission of a crime. In Okla at least it is not self-defense if you are committing a criminal act. You cannot claim self-defense when your crime goes bad.

And no doubt the sellers were also prepared for the same.
