ATLANTA (AP)— Police say an armed man trying to rob customers outside an Atlanta shoe store was fatally shot by one of the patrons waiting in line to buy sneakers.

WSB-TV reports the shooting happened Saturday morning in the city’s Little Five Points neighborhood, where people lined up outside Wish Clothing to buy new $180 sneakers endorsed by Miami Heat star LeBron James.

Witnesses told police a man armed with a gun tried to rob people standing outside the store. But one of the customers drew his own handgun and shot the robber. Police say the suspect ran just a few yards before he fell dead.

Atlanta police officer John Chafee says the shooter won’t be charged because investigators determined he fired in self-defense.

  3. Who the hell did his dumb behind think was standing in line to purchase $180.00 LeBron James endorsed sneakers? Wall street execs? That’s what his brain cell challenged ass get for trying to rob people who probably robbed someone else to get the money to buy the stupid shoes. Dumb fuck.

    Good outcome. Hopefully Zimmerman will be released too, and for the same reason.
