Man fatally shot after arranging to buy iPhone


KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) – A woman says her husband was fatally shot in Kansas City, Kansas, after arranging to meet someone about buying an iPhone 7 through the mobile sales app Letgo.

The Kansas City Star reports that 45-year-old Oune Somsanith, of Lee’s Summit, Missouri, was shot Sunday afternoon. The father of five died at a hospital.

His wife, Kelly Somsanith-Hawley, said her husband loved to make money by finding deals online, but was careful. She said that whenever he met someone about purchasing a phone, he always insisted on going to a store to check to see if the phone had been reported stolen before negotiating a final price.

Letgo described what happened as an “unimaginable tragedy” in a statement and said it’s working with law enforcement. Police haven’t released any details.
