Houston Teen Shot over shoes:
He Has A Name: Joshua Wood Shot & Killed Over New Jordan Sneakers!
Joshua Wood, 22, was shot and killed just minutes after he purchased a new pair of Jordan sneakers, according to News One.
On December 21, Wood and a friend were sitting in his parked car outside of a residence after going to a Houston mall and buying the $185 Nike Air Jordan XI Bred shoes. An armed man approached the vehicle on the passenger side and demanded Wood and his friend hand over the shoes. Wood’s friend, who was the driver of the vehicle, ran away from the car and left Wood in the passenger seat.
Shots were fired at the friend, who has not been identified, but the assailant missed. That was when the gunman turned to Wood.
According to police, the gunman shot at Woods who had tried to get behind the wheel of the car to escape. Wood did manage to drive away but was wounded and instead wound up crashing between two houses and striking a gas line.
Anthony Quinn Wade, Kegan Arrington and Neal Bland are being charged with capital murder. All three suspects are under the age of 20.
