Once again, this seems to happen far too often, you shouldn’t have to fear for your life just to buy some sneakers.
Reports are coming in about a shooting outside a Wilmington, Delaware shoe store, where people were lined up early Saturday (Oct. 5) morning to cop a pair of the latest Jordans.
The shooting occurred at around 5:30AM outside the Sneaker VILLA. A dozen people were camped out waiting to buy a pair of the junior NIKE Air Jordan V Bel-Air at the time of the shooting. The shoe is inspired by the The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and retails for $185, while the junior version costs $125. Two men — aged ages 21 and 22 — were shot and taken to a nearby hospital, where they remain in critical condition. The young men were approached by another male, who pulled out a gun and shot both in the upper body. Another pedestrian, a 22-year-old woman, was hit by a stray bullet. The woman was taken to the hospital, treated and released.
