A man set up a photoshoot on Instagram with three men—one of which he went to high school with—and claims that he ended up being robbed at gunpoint. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitutionthe man claims that he was robbed of his cell phone and camera.

The incident took place May 26 at an apartment building. Per the police report, the former classmates went to North Springs High School and connected via Instagram to set up the photoshoot. As the victim began taking photos, one of the men pulled out a gun and pointed it at him while another demanded his camera. The classmate then asked for the cell phone and victim's password. 

All three suspects apparently walked away calmly afterwards, possessing stolen items worth approximately $1,800. The victim shared the names (and profile handles) of two of the men. Authorities are investigating the incident.
