GARY, Ind. (AP) — Police say a teenager who accompanied his father to sell an Xbox was killed in Gary.

Commander Jack Hamady says the 16-year-old Merrillville boy was in a car when he was shot Wednesday. The boy’s father had arranged to sell an Xbox to someone who had connected with him online.

The Post-Tribune says the Lake County coroner’s office identified the victim as Johnny Peluyera. No arrests have been made.

Gary police say online sellers and buyers should meet at a police station parking lot or a public place.
