HOUSTON (CBS Houston) – A man who was shot by a pair of robbers who wanted his new Air Jordan sneakers has died. The victim was shot on Friday after returning home from purchasing the popular shoes.

According to Harris County sheriff’s deputies, two men had just returned from a shopping mall with new Air Jordan Retro XI Breds when they were approached by two men demanding that they surrender their new sneakers.

One of the victims jumped out of the car and escaped to safety. The other victim got behind the steering wheel and sped away.

It was then that the suspects fired at his vehicle, wounding him in the head, police said. The wounded victim then crashed his car into the side of the house on Plumwood and severed a gas line.

The man was rushed to an area hospital and later died. Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call the Harris County Sheriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
