HOUSTON – A robbery involving the new Air Jordan 11 “Bred” ended with a man shot in the head and a car crashed next to a house in northwest Harris County, deputies said.

It happened around 10:30 a.m. Friday in the 1700 block of Plumwood Drive.
Investigators said two men went to Willowbrook Mall to buy several pairs of Air Jordan 11s then headed home. As the driver pulled up to the front of his home, another vehicle pulled up in front of his car. Then an armed person got out the car and demanded the new shoes.

The driver took off running on foot, leaving his passenger behind in the car, as the thief followed him firing shots, deputies said. As the driver knocked on a neighbor’s door for help, he heard another person firing shots at his passenger. The passenger was able to get behind the wheel to escape, but he was shot in the head and ended up crashing in between two houses, hitting a gas line.

He was taken to Houston Northwest Hospital with life-threatening injuries. The driver was not hurt.So many shots were fired that bullet casings littered the street.

“It’s completely idiotic. I don’t understand the rationale of it,” said Robert Miller, a neighbor. “This kid bought his tennis shoes; you could do the same thing, instead of taking a life, or attempting to take a life behind a pair of tennis shoes. It’s just senseless nonsense violence.”

The suspects got away, leaving a shopping bag with tennis shoes inside sitting on the sidewalk.

It took two hours for Centerpoint Energy to shut off the gas.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.
