Two people were shot as people lined up outside a Foot Locker to buy new Nike shoes.
WCCO reports dozens were outside the Foot Locker on Shingle Creek Parkway, Brooklyn Center, when “multiple shots” were fired, with two males injured.
The crowds were there to buy the new Air Jordan 2 Retro “Wing It” shoes, which were released on Saturday, with staff at a nearby tire shop telling BringMeTheNews they heard “5 or 6 shots” fired.
The two victims were taken to North Memorial Medical Center in Robbinsdale with non-life threatening injuries.

Witnesses say someone cut in line, and that led to an argument that ended in a shooting, KSTP says.
It’s not been made clear if the shooter or shooters have been apprehended. A KARE 11 photographer reports the Minnesota State Patrol helicopter is circling over the scene.
More details will be updated as they become available.
