LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas — Police in Little Rock says one man is dead and another is in critical condition following a shooting.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/1uNmG9B ) that police received a report that two men were lying near a street about 10:25 p.m. Saturday.

A police report says officers found 30-year-old Angel Gonzalez and 20-year-old Uriel Costilla-Mata surrounded by a large amount of blood after sustaining multiple gunshot wounds. Gonzales was pronounced dead at a hospital, and Costilla-Mata was in critical condition.

Costilla-Mata told police they had been shot while attempting to purchase a firearm from three men they met on Facebook. He says the men showed them a gun and began to fire at them before they stole their cash and fled in a white Cadillac.

Police say no arrests have been made.
