Anthony Quinn Wade is the third suspect charged with capital murder involving the shooting death of Joshua Wood, 22, who had just purchased a few pairs of the hot and newly released $185 Nike Air Jordan XI Bred sneakers (pictured), reports the Houston Chronicle.

On the morning of December 21, Wood and a friend reportedly went to a Houston mall and purchased several pairs of the trendy sneaker. When the two young men left the mall, they reportedly drove to a residence and parked in front of it.  While sitting in the car, an armed man approached the vehicle on the passenger side and allegedly demanded that Wood and his friend hand over their Air Jordan purchases.  As soon as Wood’s friend, who was the driver, reportedly saw the gunman, he hightailed it out of the car and ran away leaving Wood in the passenger seat.

The assailant allegedly tried shooting after Wood’s friend but missed.  Meanwhile, as Wood’s friend tried desperately to knock on the doors of residences in an effort to seek help, he heard a series of gunshots.  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.

Wood was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

  1. He’s not a REAL business man. This has been happening for years and it hasn’t stopped him yet. Thats just awful. I wonder has he ever reached to the victims family in any capacity? SMH

    • This is not Michaels Jordans fault. He is a great business man that’s why he’s rich. If people can not afford them but yet buy them is the fool not Jordan. Michael Jordan has every right to make a living or get richer. Nobody expect car manufacturers to stop making cars. People are carjacked and killed over their car daily. No one asked Steve Jobs or Bill Gates to stop making money because they have enough and look at all the lives lost over the internet. Children sexually assaulted, child porn, etc. So don’t blame a man for being successful. Blame the clowns that think they can take what they have not earned. Oh and I think it was a set up by the so called friend that ran. How else would they know these two men sitting in a car have jordans? The gunman went to the passenger side of a viehicle with two people in it? Really? I am not buying it. The moral of this story isn’t rich people shouldn’t sell nice things to poor people and get rich but look at that n*g*** next to you and ask yourself, “Can I trust this fool?”

  2. michael jordan should not put his name on any shoes, he has made enough money, the people who can least afford them are buying them, maybe once he lose a love one over a pair of shoe he will understand , greed has taken his soul
