An Ohio teenager chose to give up his life over a pair of new limited edition Air Jordan tennis shoes this weekend.
Sixteen year old Jawaad Jabbar made a fatal mistake when he drew a firearm on a concealed carrier who had a pair of the coveted shoes.
According to WDTN:
According to police, three juvenile males from Middletown approached two adult males outside the Dayton Mall around 10:00 a.m. Saturday. They say one of the juveniles produced a gun and demanded merchandise from the adult males. Police say one of the males, who had a valid concealed carry weapon permit, pulled out a gun of his own and shot the teen who had the gun. That teen, identified as Jawaad Jabbar, 16, died from a single gunshot wound.
The men were at the mall to attend a limited athletic shoe release sale. Police say the two groups did not know each other and the only motive known is that of aggravated robbery to gain control of another’s property.
Sgt. Jay Phares said the teen didn’t make it to the mall in time to get in line for the shoes. “This was a random act of ‘I want something that person has and I’m going to take it from them by any means’,” said Sgt. Phares.
Two accomplices are also in custody and charges are pending further investigation.
