City News Service reported Sunday that 41-year-old Rene Balduena was killed in front of his 15-year-old son after they responded to an ad in South Los Angeles Saturday night.

Sgt. Rudy Alaniz says the pair was approached by two people believed to have made the online post in what appears to have been an attempted robbery.
