Teenager Shot After Cutting Line To Buy Yeezys

Sneakerheads are known to take their hobby very seriously, but one customer’s anger over getting jumped in line at a shoe store led to a teenager being hospitalized and another being jailed.

The New York Daily News reports 15-year-old Isaiah Martinez was shot in the left foot Saturday morning outside a Brooklyn Foot Locker. Martinez allegedly tried to cut the line waiting to get into the store to buy the Nike Air Foamposite Pro Yeezys.

Witnesses say other customers told the teen to go to the back of line. Martinez then got into a verbal exchange with another person before the situation turned violent.

“I guess he tried to get tough with one of the guys he cut,” said Jayson Roque. “One of them left and came back with a gun and shot him.”

Police have a 14-year-old suspect in custody. He is facing assault and weapons charges.

Martinez was taken to a local hospital with a nonlife-threatening injury.
