A man was critically wounded in Stockton in a shooting after he and another family member tried to retrieve a relative's stolen car audio speakers being advertised on Craigslist.

The family went to a parking lot in Stockton after arranging a meeting with those selling the speakers. The meeting ended with the suspect opening fire.

The man, who was not identified by police, was hit in the hand, shoulder and hip.

He was rushed to a local hospital.

Another family member, who asked not to be identified, issued a message to the suspects: "If you're listening to me -- please, this is my family member. ... I just ask, please, that you would do the right thing. Please turn yourself in."
