Concealed handgun saves the day in Atlanta


 

 

Limited Edition Le Bron James X denim shoes.

From UK Mail Online…

Not even a shooting could quench the desire for a new pair of basketballer LeBron James trainers.

Atlanta Police are not charging the shopper who shot in ‘self-defense’ an armed man who attempted to rob customers queuing for sneakers at the front of Wish Clothing in Little Five Points about 5.30am yesterday.

After the shooter got back in line and the would-be-thief’s body removed, customers continued waiting for the coveted denim shoe.

The dead man, who has not been identified, allegedly tried to rob a group of more than two dozen people waiting in line to buy the newly-released $180 Nike LeBron X EXT ‘Denim’ sneakers, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Witnesses said a man queuing in front of the Moreland Avenue store then pulled out a gun and shot the would-be robber, before getting back in line.

His identity has not been released.

The suspect then ran a few yards before collapsing.
