It's gotta be the shoes! (Georgia)

Around 5:30 Sunday morning (June 23), police in Atlanta,Georgia arrived on the scene at a shoe store in the "Little Five Points" area.

Upon arrival they found a man dead from multiple gunshots and about 25 people waiting in line. What were they waiting for? The new LeBron X Denim sneakers from Nike. You kind of wish you'd known so you could have been in line to get the fresh kicks, right?

Anywhoo, some moron decides he should target the people who would line up at up to a week ahead of time to get the new LeBron's. The thug shows up at the line, gun in hand, and attempts to rob the people in line. It's Atlanta so one of the people in line was an armed concealed carrier, drew his gun and shot the would be robber.

The criminal then collapsed nearby and was pronounced dead when police arrived. The shooter? He stayed in line because those LeBron's are hot.

Taylor White, who had waited in line for a week to get the sneakers, had plenty to say. "I didn't even expect him to come up here, thinking it was that sweet. Thinking it's that candy land like that," White said. "He wanted to pickpocket everybody. But people out here, they weren't going for none of that."

I'm not sure what that means so let's use a different quote of White's, "He really stood up for us all. I support the homie that did that".
