A Craigslist sneaker sale took a turn for the worse last night, ending in gunfire and leaving one man in critical condition.
The incident happened at around 9 pm last night in Houston, Texas. KHOU reports that two young men were waiting outside a home for the potential buyer of a pair of Air Jordans. When the buyer arrived, he attempted to rob the 19-year-old seller at gunpoint. During a scuffle that ensued, the buyer pulled out a gun and opened fire.
The seller of the sneakers was taken to the hospital last night in critical condition. The family said that they believe the victim knows the shooter.
